Why is the Lens Distortion Compensation off by default?

When I used Tamron 24mm/F2.8 lens I noticed the lens distortion compensation was off, because the lens suffer from a huge distortion.

I shoot RAW+JPEG and process most of the images from RAW by Capture One 22. I noticed that the lens distortion compensation setting affects the RAW processing as well, if you use the lens Manufacturer Profile in Capture One. If the lens distortion compensation is off, the Distortion slider has default value 0, so the compensation isn't applied and you have to manually set it to 100. When it is on (Auto), the Distortion slider has already the value 100 after importing the RAW images.

The only reason I can think of is the compensation is cpu expensive operation that affects battery life, that's why is turned off by default.
