I'd imagine they're a part of a number of implants that they needed to put in a dormant state, when they made Seven more human again. It's also possible that there were other, "undesirable" effects, in the Borg defensive subroutines within those implants that could not be suppressed, or isolated, if they were left activated, like going off and trying to rejoin the Collective for example.
