Continuous admin.$cmd queries in slowest operations

we are facing one strange issue in the Realtime Slowest operations. It seems that for every docker that connects to mongoDB we have one or more continuous admin.$cmd commands that are reading some thousands of documents.
All our dockers are NodeJS projects accessing the database via mongoose. One sample of the JSON RESPONSE is:

We are using MongoDB version 4.4.6.

Do you have an idea on what type of activity the system is performing?
