Well, it's all *intended* to be executed. Anything that executes *and*
does something needs the user to be logged in; anything that just
loads up a bunch of variables or functions can happily do so then exit
without any side effects at all.

(Since you tell your webserver to hand ".php" files to the PHP
interpreter, it's not like they'll be displayed or anything.)
