If you know why they are there , kindly share this with all of us.Please explain what is the purpose of these digits ( Enterprise Keywords) , I we loose few of them , what may be the consequences.
The source of the question is , one of our servers is having few extra of them like : 18,19,20,21,22,23
I checked and I wasn't able to reproduce this issue by Content Deployment between 2 SharePoint environments so this seems like an environment specific issue; in-depth engagement is not feasible thru forum replies and this issue requires a more in-depth level of support.

However, other members of the community may still have encountered the issue you're seeing, and have a solution to offer!
The keywords visible under "System" group are added by tagging documents / list items with predefined (taxonomy) and user defined (folksonomy). There are no pre-populated digit keywords so I do not believe there would be impact other than tagged items losing these tags.

I doubt :
if staging has a dummy term and corresponding TaxonomyHiddenList entry . The Content deployment /migration from staging to production create such type of terms.
What Microsoft can do to fix it :
1. Suppose staging has a term (myGuid) under Termset1(Guid1), under Group1 ( Guid2) , under Store 1 ( Guid3 ); and while migration of site collection it finds a term in taxonomyhiddenlist which is missing on target >
2. It should search for Guid1 under GUID2 under GUID 3 to create a term with myGuid.
As of now under current implementation by Microsoft for migration API's it seems to be creating entry under Group System Termset Keywords.
