I may be wrong but I believe the the cable supplied is PD compatible. PD requires that the source and sink have PD compatible USB-C interfaces and that the cable can operate with the higher voltages and currents associated with PD

The RP, at least in the US, does not come with any cable. They assume that at this point, you have more than enough cables.  But if want to charge the camera using the cable, it has to be PD rated.  So I bought a generic one off Amazon.  I used it for a firmware update and transferred some image files maybe once - and went back to using my card reader.

Charging the camera  via USB C connection definitely has benefits if you travel or go on long shoots so the PD version of the cable can be very useful
