Default Floaters

So I just kegged my first beer last night. I transferred into the keg from the primary after 15 days. During transfer, I noticed yeast cells rising to the top and bubbles evolving from solution (in the fermentor). My final gravity is around 1.012-1.013, so I am pretty sure the fermentation was complete. So why were the yeast rising like they were actively fermenting? Thanks.

it's probably just trapped CO2 escaping. Nothing to worry about
