Why did SELinux relable my filesystem?

Hello, Everyone
During my most recent re-boot, SELinux relabled my entire filesystem.
Which would be fine, except for the fact that I have SELinux disabled
on my system:

> # This file controls the state of SELinux on the system.
> # SELINUX= can take one of these three values:
> #     enforcing - SELinux security policy is enforced.
> #     permissive - SELinux prints warnings instead of enforcing.
> #     disabled - No SELinux policy is loaded.
> SELINUX=disabled
> # SELINUXTYPE= can take one of these two values:
> #     targeted - Targeted processes are protected,
> #     minimum - Modification of targeted policy. Only selected
> processes are protected. #     mls - Multi Level Security protection.
> SELINUXTYPE=targeted

Why did SELinux, which is disabled on my system, spend all that time re-labeling my filesystem?
