I did a little searching around in the community and this is one explanation given. "Some numbers are not posted on your bill when you receive a call from them. Lacking any other number to post, the system just posts your own number. I can't say exactly why it's your own number, but it's always been like that. I think they just haven't bothered to change it because it'd be confusing no matter what they put".

Calls from "private numbers" are often posted as being from your own phone number. Experienced this as both wife and I have private numbers. Calls from one to the other report as a call from self.

Incoming calls are posted as your own number on your bill so it could be that too

Could it be voicemail too?

Hi there, Dfbutt is right! Incoming calls from private numbers will be displayed with your own number on your airtime history online. Thank you!
