Yes, you are most likely seeing the link atoms added to the QM calculation
(even though they are not part of the original system).
I did not work on the Gaussian script, and have never used Gaussian for
QM/MM, so I cannot tell the specifics of that calculation.
Maybe people here more knowledgeable in Gaussian output could help, or the
original author of that script.
