Are you sure they were not entered as suggestions initially?  Two 
possible explanations at first glance:

1. Other translations were imported (or selected by another translation 
team member) after you provided yours.

2. If you did a published upload, then any non-published translations 
that Launchpad had for the same strings would remain selected, and the 
newly-imported ones would be taken as suggestions.
