I have seen the same content inside public_html and also beside this file: .htaccess.1575847843.bak.
Content is the same and but file name has additional extension.Is it possible that cPanel system added such file as we did not notice also login attempt?

It is possible, cPanel needs to append the .htaccess file for the PHP version you're using in some cases as well as AutoSSL exclusions/inclusions, there are also instances in which the .htaccess can't be appended (incorrect permissions) - it's done this way as it's always the best practice to have a backup of any modification you make.
