The predicate is evaluated for each node in the list.
So, $file-nbn-set/nbn-set/nbn gives a list (for you) of 3 nodes.
For the first one, position() will be 1.
For the second one, position() will be 2.
For the third one, position() will be 3.
The predicate will be non-zero in each case, and hence taken to be true,
so all three results are taken.

I don't know what you were expecting so I'm not sure why this is weird.
