If the queen was unable to fly they could have came back. If your split wasn't moved far enough away those bees could have come back. 2 frames of capped brood could have hatched and that would have been enough bees to cover 4 frames. You could have a large population of older bees and they were out foraging when you made the split and when you went back to add frames they were home.
