Three '450.status-security' scripts enabled by default

While investigating the delay of daily periodic jobs, I found there
are three '450.status-security' scripts under /etc/periodic, that is,
/etc/periodic/{dairy,monthry,weekly}/450.status-security. All of them
executes 'periodic security' and only difference is how often they are
executed. So I think the purpose of them is to provide user option
how often 'periodic security' is executed. OK, I understand it. But I
can't understand setting about them in /etc/defaults/periodic.conf
because all of them are enabled by default. If the purpose is what I
explained, normal user expects at most one of them is enabled. So are
there any reason that all of them are enabled by default?
