Did you turn off both Apps and Updates in those settings, just to make sure?

How can you tell that apps are still being updated on their own?

Do you know that some of those apps that were listed earlier when you had 5 updates in fact got updated when the count went down to 2? Do you actually have the new updates versions of those apps? Perhaps their updates got pulled or aren't showing up correctly? Just trying to make sure there's not something else behind something odd like this.

Usually downloaded apps are listed in the Notification Center if you have allowed that. I also found apps downloaded even when I had it turned off, but I decided it was easier to have them auto-dl than to have to keep checking. By having it in the Notification Center, I can keep track.
