The reason behind them is not "supposed" to be safety--it IS safety. It's making sure a child isn't lost or stolen or doesn't have their poor arm yanked on holding an adults hand. The majority of parents utilizing a harness are not dragging their kids around--it is a tool to make sure an active and independent toddler doesn't wander off. If a harness is going to help a family, why not use it? Some parents strap their toddler into a carrier or stroller, some use a harness so the child can walk, and some parents are lucky enough to get a child who doesn't need any of them. Not needing to use something beneficial to other parents does not make one a better parent.
