Is that normal?
Well if you already have an account you can *procreate* other accounts
(as sock-puppets or accounts to give to other people). To stop this
you can use:
$wgGroupPermissions['user']['createaccount'] = false;
$wgGroupPermissions['sysop']['createaccount'] = false;
// etc. etc.
You can double-check at [[Special:Listgrouprights]] and make sure no
other groups still have the privilege "create new user accounts" or
more likely "créer de nouveaux comptes utilisateur".
