I remember back in the "good ole days" when I used to tinker around with my bikes, I would always find what looked like missing wires or as you saw, connectors which weren't connected... Sometimes bikes leave the factory with the exact same wiring harness as could be found anywhere in the world, only, some countries required slightly different electrical things than other countries,, so,, they simply left the connector uncennected.
In those days, some countries had headlights which came on as soon as the key was turned on, while here, we had a sererate headlight On/Off switch. Also, some countries has indicators which had a stop/taillight bulb in them, so the indicators would also act as a taillight for extra lighting,, while the rest of us had ordrinary indicator bulbs.
In short - same harness, different requirements...
