There definitely is some user oriented stuff that gets run by default, but
maybe only when using a desktop. Bluetooth seems to work that way. Installing
beagle and another indexing program I noticed recently but don't remember the
name of, schedule indexing operations by default. There is a mail client that
has an annoying desktop popup by the default just for having it installed.
There are other things that are needed for lots of stuff to function, such
as pulseaudio, so it's not always clear cut what the proper default should be.
