Why do hotel housekeepers put the tub stopper down after they clean?

This isn't something that we tell them to do, and doesn't seem like it would be a good idea. We'd have no good reason for wanting to tell them to do it.

My best guess  is, some of them clean the tub, rinse it out, then wipe over the water spots that occurred as part of the rinse, often hitting the lever for the drain as they do and leaving it down, not caring to see that it's put back in the 'up' position. 

(I might ask around and come back to this one, get an insight from some room attendants who'd have a little more up-close-and-personal experience with the phenomenon . . .)
