App permission bug?

Hi, After factory resetting the phone because of apps not starting, I have noticed something weird. The app permission overview says two out of 10 apps (including system apps) have the camera permission although I have given the permission to only one app. Likewise microphone, location, calendar, sms etc. show the wrong number in the app permission overview list (it always shows a higher number than I have given permission). Is there a hidden app which uses permissions without the ability to turn it off? Does anybody else have the same issue?

The inbuilt system diagnostic app/phone health app will have access to all phone peripherals like camera, microphone, etc. There must be some other apps like this having system wide permissions.
