Why do some buildings have each day as day off?

I have found 4 buildings in the meta file which have all days of the week as days off. These are their series_ids = 630, 959, 1324, 1328.

It doesn’t make any sense to have all days of the week as off days. I have looked at the entries of these buildings in the consumption_train file and the cold_start_test file, and it’s interesting to see that all 4 of them have entries in which they consume energy in millions of wH (they might even be considered as outliers).

Does anybody have an explanation for this weird behaviour?
