Traffik between nodes using external port 8006

I have a 7 nodes cluster communicating with a private network.
I just noticed there's a connection between a random port of one of them to the public IP of another on port 8006:

14:34:52.461001 IP node5public.47128 > node3public.8006: Flags [.], ack 49438, win 501, options [nop,nop,TS val 520091568 ecr 6844307], length 0

# ss -tp | grep 47128
ESTAB      0      0               node5public:47128             node3public:8006                 users:(("pveproxy worker",pid=27646,fd=12))

Is it to be expected? what is this connection for?

Thanks in advance
