That's correct -- whenever you commit any file in CVSROOT or a
subdirectory of CVSROOT, CVS rebuilds the administrative files.  The
checkoutlist file is a list of additional files to be *checked out* when
rebuilding the administrative files, not a list of additional files that
cause the administrative files to be rebuilt when they're checked in. 
If you look in $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/util, you should find that you only have,v and not unless you've added it to checkoutlist.
