Is there ever a legitimate reason for an outsider to access wp-admin


I have a non-wordpress website, and I’ve noticed I get a lot of 404 errors regarding requests to /wp-admin

My gut instinct is to blacklist the IP address corresponding to any "wp-admin" query, as it is probably someone attempting something uncouth.

But is there any possible legitimate reason for such a query? Perhaps a search engine trying to determine if I’m running wordpress?

(Note: I understand the paradox of asking a question about a non-wordpress site on a wordpress development site, but my question pertains directly to a wordpress feature so I hope you find it relevant.)
