Desktop cables left in plastic bag after installation?

Specs: Windows for Workgroups 3.11, Pentium Pro
It seems like every business or school has at least one desktop that has it's external cables (display, keyboard, power, etc) installed with the clear shipping bag still on them, usually wire-tied a couple inches in from the connector ends.

I'm sure some of you have seen this. What's it all about? I can understand keeping dust out of old-school coiled keyboard cables (or today's bar code scanners), but more often, the plastic is covered in a layer thick of dust anyway...

Can anyone explain why this is done?

Laziness on the part of the installing technician I would think.

Maybe to discourage tampering.
