If you launch an app that has not been set to stay permanently in the Dock, that app will appear in the Dock while the app is running. In previous versions of macOS, the app icon would leave the dock when you quit the app. macOS Mojave now has a recents section in the Dock, which shows the three most recent apps you've launched, which are not permanently stored in the Dock. This video shows how the recents section works and how to disable it if you don't like it.
