'users' field in registry response

I was wondering what the users property in the registry response means. For example, in the response for my package citation-js it says

  "users": {
    "bpiwowar": true

I’m not aware of any way that user (link) could have to do with my package, apart from non-public information like stars and private packages. Also, it doesn’t seem to represent authors of dependents, and it’s probably not downloads either.
