    Could it be cron-jobs?? the apps.vhost?? all my other sites are running as WEB* whatever. I find it strange.

    These are apache processes, so this can be any website on your server. These processes are not from scripts, it can be a html or image file or apache calls fcgi and wiats for an answer. Apache itself runs always as www-data user, dont mix up the apache main process with the php processes of a website (which run as web* user) or the ispconfg or ispapps vhost (which run as user ispconfig or ispapps).
