Same reason for all the discoverable buses need bindings. There can be
parts that are not discoverable or connections with non-discoverable
nodes. There's also cases where the discoverable device has to be
powered, reset deasserted, clocks enabled, etc. first to be
discovered.

If the GPIOs here had connections elsewhere in the DT, then we have to
describe the provider in DT.
