I did say it was an academic question.
If no one knows, thats fine, I was just curious.

From an “academic” and “purely from an SEO perspective” as you mentioned, we clearly answered your question.

Academically, if you offer value to your customer/reader base with your knowledge and or recommended resources you offer through your site, then it’s of great benefit.

From an SEO perspective, if you over-do-it for the sole purpose of ranking, then avoid it all together. “Balance is the Key”.

All though Google is strict on quality these days, they are also keen not to identify the key signals for ranking sites, to avoid the “Herd of Sheep” following each other and “Spamming” the Internet once more.
