That way, under light heating load, the flow can stay up a bit but at low temperature - avoiding the "rad cold but for a small (very) hot spot at one end" effect. Or depending on the setup, avoiding the noisy system pumping water round through the bypass because the stupid boiler design* can't cope with normal heating loads.

OpenTRV already routinely sends back valve open position to the boiler controller.

This is a rather overloaded diagram for my own analysis, but the blue crosses show valve position:
