Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Showing us df -h output for the filesystems in questions would help. The previous reply assumes these are NFS mounts.
It could be some other script doing the mount for specific purposes - I've seen many a loopback mounted that way. Looking in /etc/init.d for any script that runs the "mount" command might help you figure out what it is if it isn't an auto NFS mount. (Auto NFS by the way should only mount filesystems when they are accessed as that is the point - when not in use autofs filesystems unmount themselves.)
It appears you're right that none of those is doing the mount.
Did you ever check the scripts in /etc/init.d to see if any of those are doing a mount command (other than the standard ones)? I'd mentioned that in my initial reply. Doing a grep working/files /etc/init.d/* would probably be best to check for this since that is the mounted filesystem's name.
You might also want to check your cron files to see if any of those are doing it.
Also although seldom used for such purposes these days it is barely possible you have a script being called by /etc/inittab doing the mount so you can look there to rule it out.
Of course its possible that one of your scripts is calling another one that is doing the mount so it may be harder to find because you'd have to look at levels. Also it is possible that you have a completely separate server doing an ssh into this one to do the mount and that would be even harder to find. You could try manually unmounting the filesystem then removing the mount point directory so the mount fails when attempted to see if you get an error message on boot or start getting errors in /var/log/messages or cron log or somewhere else when it tries to do the mount.
