open-vm-tools in the NW 11.1 image for Azure

I just spot open-vm-tools package installed and enabled on a newly deployed NW 11.1 head server in Azure. It was deployed using the image version 11.1 available on the Azure marketplace. 


What is the reason for the VMWare tools to be installed in a server in Azure?  


# yum history info open-vm-tools
