I've had that sort of thing happen to me every once in a while under circumstances where it couldn't be anything but coincidence. I'll see the same relatively uncommon word (or the same word clued in the same slightly quirky way!) in more than one puzzle in the same week, or even the same day, but the two puzzles come from completely different sources.

As with just about anything else, with a large enough simple space it would be very surprising if there were no coincidences.
