Right now there are two questions bumped by Community Bot without any apparent edits or any need for bumping (they were answered years ago):

enter image description here

Clicking the "modified X ago" link just loads the question. There are no visible modification.

Why is this happening and can it be stopped? This is seriously annoying as a contributor who wants to help people.

That’s the Community bot doing its job. Both questions you linked to have answers but no votes on them and it wants us to decide whether they are useful or not. One upvote will stop them being bumped but, if they do not appear useful, then downvote them instead so that the Community bot can do another of its jobs, which is to delete Q&As that the community has indicated to be not useful.
