Random DCRA inspection?

“Came home to a flyer on our door from DCRA saying they had come by and “attempted to inspect” our house–and we should call to reschedule. Anyone ever hear of that? Do they random inspect or would someone have called them? We’ve had some painting recently done and repairs to our staircase but nothing that seemed to need permitting, and nothing that has irritated neighbors to the best of our knowledge. I’m on good terms with them all (I think). Strikes me as very odd (also because they note a different address than our house–it’s a corner and used to have doors on both streets but they used the old address that no longer has a door and isn’t the official address). Anyone hear of a scam this way? Wondering if I should call to reschedule or ignore.”
