Why does some sites show Cloudflare has host?

Hi, I have tried to check some websites host and I saw that their host is Cloudflare. Cloudflare says it doesn’t provide hosting package so why is it showing it as host?

I do agree that this is confusing - some website scanners just treat Cloudflare as a “host”, but in fact it’s not. This could be due to the fact that Cloudflare is sitting between visitors and servers (or hosting providers) and we can only see who’s directly facing/serving the traffic to the visitors.
