I don't know the answer here, but I suspect it has something to do
that we also support BT and that might need it.
When tethering, we want to connect all technologies together into one
network be they Bluetooth, ethernet, WiFi or anything else. Works
without an uplink interface too and has only one knob 'Tethering'
turned on for those network technologies we want to share the possible
uplink connection with.
