I've followed the instructions here to run monerod and monero-wallet-cli only on localhost. After I started mining, I noticed transactions showing up in my wallet:

And my wallet had a balance:

Where are these transactions coming from? I've not made any transactions and monerod is only communicating to the other monerod node running on the same machine.

Blocks get mined every 2 minutes on average regardless if there are transactions or not. Your node is the one mining them. You are getting the mining reward.

They are the coinbase transactions or block reward from your mining. See moneropedia

Monero, like Bitcoin, incentivizes miners with a block reward, so you get some amount of monero when you mine a new block. Those coinbase transactions do not have any non-placeholder inputs, just outputs.
