Mdworker Full Disk Access

I noticed that on my Mac running Catalina mdworker does not have Full Disk Access, as can be seen in the below screenshot. I don’t think I ever tinkered with this setting, but I’m still curious what the default setting is, or what it is on other people’s machine. It doesn;t feel quite right, as mdworker is basically the Spotlight engine. As such, shouldn’t it need Full Disk Access?

macOS sets core permissions without user approval. Don’t sweat it.

Here on Mojave those items don’t even show up, interestingly enough - just apps.
