Because you have set your ports options in such a way that the MariaDB 
port depends on something (that depends on something)* that in turn 
depends on SQLite. databases/mariadb101-server itself does not have, nor 
can it be configured to have, a dependency on databases/sqlite3.

Installing this one port brings in 41 more as dependencies (on my system 
as of right now), so there are plenty of chances for something to use 

Also, since your question is not clear on whether you mean SQLite is 
installed as part of the port or separately, the port does not install 
any files that might indicate the presence of an internal copy of SQLite.
