It is possible to explain everything in almost any way you want, but the most sensible one is usually the true one.
Keep in mind that there have been data-mining expeditions in the past that found things that have yet to be turned on, a year or more later. Sometimes stuff goes in the code in preparation for a feature that doesn't work out, or that is long down the road before it's added, because people are working on a portion of the code necessary for the future plans and it's not modular enough to leave it out of subsequent builds.

This is true of every MMO, and it's one reason why they discourage such data mining.
