This was the feature I didn't like about the stock launcher. It will grow or shrink on it's own based on how many icons you have and it will add icons to a home screen whenever you download apps from Play. While the simplicity is nice, there aren't a lot of controls for modifying this behavior. Like you, I wasn't aware that it would create a blank Home Screen, but it might do that if the previous Home Screen fills up. It also doesn't allow you to select the default HS-- always the left-most screen whereas I prefer the default screen to be the one in the middle.
I didn't stay with it long enough to learns all it's ins and outs. Drove me crazy and I went back to Nova.
