Just like any time people take a word that already has a common definition and use and assign it to a different definition that already has a commonly used word associated with it.

For the people who insist on "provenance of data", I cannot be arsed to go find examples for you right this moment. But, I will keep my eyes open for examples as they come forth, and if I remember, and am getting a strong enough wifi signal, I will post them here retroactively for consideration and posterity.
