This morning I found 13 questions in the "Close Votes" review queue. Of them, four I considered odd - they were not the standard questions from that queue, so I clicked on the "link" to see how many close votes they had. And they each had...none$^{[1]}$.

What is going on here? Can questions enter the review queue with no close votes?

$^{[1]}$ Well, okay, one had one, but it obtained that vote when in the review queue. So it entered the review queue with, apparently, no votes.

When a user (without the vote-to-close privilege) flags a question using one of the canned close reasons, the question will be placed in the Close Votes review queue (see MSE answer). Since that user cannot vote to close, the question will enter in the queue without any close votes.

(If a user with the vote-to-close privilege flags a question using one of the canned close reasons, the flag is just converted into a close vote.)
