What is the Purpose of the Required Columns field in List Builder Settings for the Page Section in Page Designer?

When going to Page Designer and viewing the page options for a page that contains a List Builder list, there is a field for Required columns in the List Builder section.
The Required columns field will not set defaults for the columns that appear in the List Builder list or in the list of available columns to choose from in the Columns drop down, rather this setting is for developers who are adding actions and forms to the ListBuilder. The Required column setting marks the system IDs for the selected fields as required which stores them for use with other forms that require this data as necessary for later use. This is not a way to default or require fields in the ListBuilder itself for the end user.

In order for the user to control what columns to display in the ListBuilder list, see the following knowledge base solution:
