I have the recently used option on the dock turned off but my Best Buy app keeps appearing there with a little alarm clock on it. Anyone have any idea what that means?

Based on my own experience, it means that it detects that you use that app frequently at that time of day and is putting it there for your convenience. It’s basically the same thing that happens in iOS 10 but there it appears at the bottom left, most often when you invoked the fast app switcher and minus the little clock icon.

Yep, that’s it. Siri Suggestions. Still appears in a little bar in multitasking on the iphone in iOS 11 but since the dock is always present in multitasking on iPad I guess they found a new of displaying it.
