I don't know what to tell you. As far as MacPorts knows, you did not
request the installation of those ports, and nothing you've installed
declares a library or runtime dependency on them

Some ports may be installed as build dependencies. Or some ports you
installed now need different dependencies than they used to. Macports won't
auto-notify you when some dependencies are no longer needed, so ports may
accumulate over time.
