But you are missing the main reason this is being added .... content migrated from Yahoo is assigned to the migrator as the owner so reassignment of ownership is needed.

Official or not doesn't matter. Incorrect attribution is, at best, a
copyright violation. If somebody requests all content relating to them
to be deleted, and something is incorrectly attributed, resulting in it
not being deleted, you just broke both GDPR and Copyright Law.

GDPR.  Might be a bit late to do so.

GDPR doesn't prohibit sharing content, provided the creator explicitly
consented to sharing the content, and the content is correctly attributed.

I am not a lawyer. This is not legal advice.
