LFD259 - 5.17 ConfigMaps - How is "optional" used?

I see both in the course and the kubernetes documentation for the optional flag of a ConfigMap, this information:

You must create a ConfigMap before referencing it in a Pod specification (unless you mark the ConfigMap as “optional”).

My question is, what's a scenario that would benefit from this feature?
