I believe get_maintainer.pl is still going to do that for
awhile as you are a commit signer for several of these driver
files.  Files that are not either "supported" or "maintained"
by default add the --git-fallback option.

For instance, With your patch:
$ ./scripts/get_maintainer.pl -f drivers/i2c/algos/i2c-algo-bit.c

linux-kernel@vger.kernel.org (open list)

Your name should not be shown after a year or so unless you
actually sign-off on patches to those subdirectories.

btw: You signed-off using 2 different addresses on one
of those patches.  I think that's odd.

    i2c: algo-bit: init the bus to a known state
    Ensure the bus is free when we register the adapter. Before the SCL/SDA
    wires were in an unknown state. It used to work because sending a byte
    has a retry mechanism which was triggered if the bus was initially in a
    non-free state. But the graceful way to do it is to initialize
