It's not so much _needed_ as helpful.  If a loaded binary, such as
sshd, isn't restarted, it's could be a quicker or more obvious
indicator.  Or in the case where an administrator has done something
unwise like manually installing binaries/moving things around.  Not
strictly needed, but could be a time saver.

Not worth a lot of effort/comment, but if someone else found it useful
for their support folks (ours cover a wide range of topics) to guide
their thinking...
