Why does my dbt output have so many macros in it?

The output of a dbt run counts over 100 macros in your project!

$ dbt run
Running with dbt=0.17.0
Found 1 model, 0 tests, 0 snapshots, 0 analyses, 138 macros, 0 operations, 0 seed files, 0 sources

This is because dbt ships with its own project, which also includes macros! You can learn more about this here.
