Links to Wikipedia Articles Replaced with Non-existent Canvas Wiki Page Links

I had something strange happen in an online Health Information Technology course development today. The course references several historical models and terminology not directly taught in the course but referenced. I used the support of Wikipedia to ensure students would have access to information if needed.

Today, when I ran the link validation each of these Wikipedia links was directing to an equally named, but non-existent, blank wiki page in Canvas. So in the example above, I would get the option to create a Canvas page titled "Donabedian." 

I've replaced them all now, but I'm curious if anyone else has had this happen?
