NextCloud data directory location - Totally confused!

I just wonder why everybody in their tutorials and videos on youtube of Nextcloud installation are creating custom datasets for db, userdata etc… and not letting config just use defaults?

What is the advantage of custom datasets and messing with permissions?

If you pick extra datasets you can snapshot and replicate them as you see fit. Edit config files e.g. for Homeassistant behind an SSL proxy, etc. The contents of that ix-applications dataset are not to be messed with as far as I understand.
