I have GFI's outside that don't have anything plugged into them and the trip out occasionally, there are several and not all but some do trip. I live in South Louisiana, it may be humidity related but they're not in use.

Most likely protecting downstream outlets that have an issue.

An electrician neighbor is coming over at night and pressing the test button so he can drum up some business. :whistling2::jester:

My secret is out.:wink: It's better to plug the bug-eye tester in outside though and trip the GFCI that's hidden somewhere in the house. Less obvious and harder to find and reset.
