qBittorrent question: seeds/leechers

Hi, quick question for someone who uses qBittorrent. Next to the list of torrents to be downloaded, in the Seeds/Leechers column, each torrent has a number set like one of these:


I know what seeds and leechers are, but I'm confused about one thing: What do the numbers in the parentheses represent? Even when there is no actual downloading/uploading going on, there will often still be non-zero numbers in the parentheses, like so:

This is not correct

This is not right.
