Not a whole lot, yet, and it may never really get to be *that* many.
On the other hand, maybe it will. It certainly shouldn't ever get
anywhere near the level of Special:CentralAutoLogin.

The /initiate you saw should have been followed by a call to
/authorize and then likely a call to /token, but of course those could
have missed the sampling. We've also got /verified, /identify, and
/grants in there.

Of all these, /authorize, /verified, and /grants are the only ones
that could remotely be considered a real pageview. You can see
/authorize by going to
https://tools.wmflabs.org/oauth-hello-world/enduser.php and clicking
the "Make an edit" button, /verified at
and /grants at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:OAuth/grants.
