Words ‘cookies’, ‘cookie’, ‘consent’ appearing as keywords in SEO audit. How to stop this?

I’m using RankMath as my SEO plug-in and the CookeYes! GDPR plug-in to be GDPR-compliant, in WordPress. After running an SEO audit of all my pages words like ‘cookies’, ‘cookie’, ‘consent’, ‘website’, ‘used’, ‘user’ are showing up in the audit as keywords…wtf? How do I fix that exactly? And they’re showing as keywords on every page, not just the landing page (which is the only place the cookie banner appears).

I’m assuming CookeYes! is causing the issue, but I don’t know how to correct it. I’m not an SEO savvy person, hence turning to the SEO experts on this sub for some guidance.

Thank you in advance!!
