Why does minetest store light in the nodes?

It might seem like a dumb question for a minetest developer but I have never really dig down into the code and I'm too noob with minetest C code structure to really understand anything from the code. Is it just for faster calculation maybe?

Minetest doesn't use hardware lighting. All lighting is calculated in software. In order not to have to recalculate light over and over again, it is stored in the map.
