I know I tried mining BTC several years ago and found a backup from that machine. The debug.log has several thousand entries but yet the wallet.dat in the same folder shows up 0 transactions and is empty according to BTC core. I guess this could be some other BTC installation I had but does it make sense for the log file to have that many entries yet the wallet.dat is empty?

Yes,

The logfile just shows the wallet checking its datafiles, communicating with other nodes, collecting blockchain data etc.

Even if you never send or receive money, the log file will have a record of lots of activity.
