CH3 Ticket: User Management -- Why reading data after insert?

Hi

MongoDB team wrote code that get the user by email after inserting a user document. I think this is redundant because MongoDB automatically reads it after inserting it and populate the _Id field. Why should I read it again?

    public async Task<UserResponse> AddUserAsync(string name, string email, string password,
        CancellationToken cancellationToken = default)
    {
        try
        {
            var user = new User();
            user.Name = name;
            user.Email = email;
            user.HashedPassword = PasswordHashOMatic.Hash(password);

            InsertOneOptions insertOneOptions = new InsertOneOptions();                
            await _usersCollection.WithWriteConcern(WriteConcern.WMajority).InsertOneAsync(user, insertOneOptions, cancellationToken);
            
            // I think the line below is redundant.  Isn't it?
            var newUser = GetUserAsync(user.Email, cancellationToken).Result;
            return new UserResponse(newUser);
        }
        catch (Exception ex)
        {
            return ex.Message.StartsWith("MongoError: E11000 duplicate key error")
                ? new UserResponse(false, "A user with the given email already exists.")
                : new UserResponse(false, ex.Message);
        }
    }

Thanks
