Well, it's not magic.  Ports only get installed by one of two ways; you 
deliberately install them or they get installed as dependencies.  If you didn't 
deliberately install a port, then it must be a dependency of something.  If it 
doesn't list any, then it's possible your pkgdb is inaccurate.  Run % pkgdb -F 
to correct any incorrect or missing dependencies.

What port is it?
