Comment (by Otto42):

 Popularity is determined by a rolling download count over the last 7 days.
 So, people are downloading them, which is why they are in the list. If
 they already had them, then they wouldn't be downloading them, and they
 wouldn't be in the list.

 Now, I grant you that updates count toward the download count, but the
 twenties have not been updated in some time, so I don't think that plays a
 part there.

 Also note that themes that are bundled with WP don't get downloaded
 through the theme downloader, and don't contribute to the count. So,
 that's not a factor.
