Are you using a distro package? There might be a NetworkManager
dispatcher script or other integration with the system networking
calling chronyc onoffline.

What version of chrony is it?

If it's before 4.0, iburst worked as if the chronyc burst command was
issued on start. It switched to online just for the burst and then
switched back. Those sources would be included in "0 sources doing
burst (return to offline)". In 4.0 iburst was changed to do the burst
only when online.
