Picnic table - why ask about bench?

According to the wiki the tag:leisure=picnic_table “is a table with benches, ideal for food and rest.” and all the images shown on the page are tables with benches. Even so when editing a picnic table there is an additional setting “Used to indicate whether the feature has any benches or not”. Why this additional tag for bench if it is already part of the definition?
