Powering Off Vibration

Does anyone know the thinking behind the pointless vibration that occurs at the end of the power off cycle? Even better if there's a way to turn it completely off. Another stupid featureis the blast of bright life when I turn it on.

I have a Motorola G (3rd Generation) Android version 5.1.1 but I've noticed the vibration with at least one other phone (LG).
Thanks in advance.

I think it's tied into the shutdown to give you a note that your phone has turned off when it runs out of battery... I think most of the phones I've had recently have vibrated when turning off.

As for disabling the feature, don't know :(

Thanks. It seems like a stupid feature. The problem with programmers is that they have to keep "improving" things which sometimes results in these superfluous features.
