Why is there UDP traffic if utp is turned off?

When I look at the "Current Sessions" on my NAT gateway I see a lot of UDP listed. I have utp disabled in transmission-daemon so what is causing these? The local port listed is the one I configured transmission to use and the IP is the system it is running on.

Why do I care? The gateway has to keep track of all these connections and the table size is limited. Too many and things will stop working. I would like to support more connections on transmission but not if it is going to lock up the gateway.

Trackers? DHT and PEX?
