Seems fairly bogus in the context of a laptop.

They are used to select the stream used for things like mms:/// and
rtsp:/// streaming, which have different streams based on the connection speed. No way to detect this without a lot of traffic (like you're going
to try and max out a 1 Gbit LAN...).

On the other end of the spectrum, measuring the traffic can't be the right answer on a pay-by-the-bit cellular packet network. That's at least one laptop context where the setting makes sense, if there isn't some other fix.
