Did I receive fraudulent DMCA takedowns?

The author received three DMCA takedown notices for 7,350 URLs on their hardbin.com IPFS gateway alleging that the URLs were serving infringing copies of books. However, of those URLs, none have ever been accessed during the time for which the author has nginx logs, and of the ones they checked, none even worked. The author believes the notices may be fraudulent and is analyzing the situation. The Law.StackExchange thread mentions that nobody has ever faced criminal charges for sending false DMCA takedown notices, and there have been very few civil cases. The author is questioning whether or not these takedown notices are fraudulent and what can be done about it.
