Is there something that I should do to prevent this, other than not using Chrome? This really should be a question for Patrick Wardle of Objective-See , the developer of Block-Block, but I can give you a couple of facts here.
This isn't malware, just something that Google provides which will automatically update Google apps for you. If that's not what you want, check with Google on how to disable it. Not sure why it's happening every time you launch Chrome.

There have been daily updates recently and it takes a few minutes for the updates to take place, so from what you posted one second between launches wasn't enough time for the update to take place. It's also possible that something about that automatic update mechanism isn't working, so best to select "About Google Chrome" from the Chrome menu to see if you need to manually update it.
Oh, and one more thing Note that Block-Block is still in beta testing for several years now so should not be expected to be perfect.
The was an error in Chrome update indicated in "About Google Chrome". I've included a screenshot of the "About" just for documentation. Google's instructions for correcting the error were to uninstall Chrome then reinstall. The first start after the reinstall, the BlockBlock notices we there as they should be.
So far they have not shown up on any subsequent starts. I'll add another update to this thread in a few days to confirm that it does fix the problem. I wasn't trying to demean BlockBlock, I'm very glad to have it.
In this situation, I couldn't tell what was causing the situation so it seemed wise to ask. I'll contact google about the issue and post the result when it is resolved.
Exit code: Standard error output: "goobspatch: old hash mismatch: 4d8d2eb14b9fefcc1d2d76e! The problem appeared as if it was resolved.
