API v3 - Search repository by commit date (pushed_at). Working as intended?

Hi, I’m working on an internship project involving public repositories but I’ve some issues.

I’m trying to search for repositories that were committed within a range of dates, using pushed, however, it seems like its getting updated by both commits and pull requests.
Here is an example:

Repo: octocat/Hello-World
Current date: 2020-07-29
URL: api.github .com/repos/octocat/Hello-World


Latest commit
Latest PR

Am I missing something? How can I solve this?

It seems funny that a pull request which ends up being closed without merging, updates the pushed_at date.
