Why sometimes my question shows "modified by", but the content hasn't been edited?

For example, my most recent question shows in the list that it has been modified by a user.

Modified by

But in fact, when I check the question, there's no sign of any editing.

Is it because the edit is awaiting peer review? But I thought OP would get notified of those to-be-reviewed edits and get to approve them. Am I mistaken?
