This is a very interesting observation.
This shp contains all states as well as overseas territories of the US, which together form a very big bounding box that spans across the world map from west to east. The center of this big bounding box is somewhere in Africa.

The same result can be duplicated in ArcMap, see the png file in resource https://www.hydroshare.org/resource/fdd44e1a9aed47b397e1dc70cb053d16/
