Not in one season. If They had been there a few years, it is possible, but they need to be in the ground for at least a full year before they produce seeds and bulblets (which you would need to grow new hyacinth).

They may have been there before but just did not do well (i.e. flower) before there was someone to care for the location. Seeds may have been dropped by birds or other animals as well.
