Windshield Wipers

Got a random question for everyone. Does anybody know why after cleaning the windshield the Wipers wipe across the windshield one more time automatically?

To wipe away any leftover washer fluid that may have dripped or run onto the windshield after washing it, so you don't have to hit the wiper arm yourself to do it.

This was a nice feature that I noticed on my 2007. Smart. But now I expect it on my Sonic too.

On Gen 1 and 2 cars, there was always a big dripping of washer fluid after last wiper pass, so the extra swipe was helpful. On Gen 3, the drip isnt as big, but still nice to have the extra swipe.
