[Bug] Why are there empty blocks in Block explorer?

As it seems I was the only one active on DelegateCall during the last 15 Minutes, only my transactions were included in the blocks 14819-14828.

You can see from the Txs in the explorer, that I only put actions there, but no one else. But after every of my actions (Txs = 1), an empty block was mined (Txs = 0), just until another Tx happened. Also, since 12 minutes, nothing happened on DelegateCall with a write-action/transaction being produced (maybe thats a feature in DPoS), so no block was created during the last 12 minutes. It seems like, if there is an action happening, that is correctly included in a block, then an empty block gets created every time after an action took place, where as if no further Tx happens, no block at all will be produced.

Seems quite weird to me? Is the consensus algorithm buggy? I would expect no empty blocks at all if there are no blocks created for 12 minutes?
