For Honey to be a proper stand-in for Slime in redstone, it needs its own version of a sticky piston. However, rather than leaving it at that, why not have the piston not leave blocks behind? Since honey is canonically stickier in-game, it makes a lot of sense.
In Java edition, one of the major quirks of sticky pistons is that they can leave a block they push behind if they are deactivated quickly enough afterwards, and it allows for a lot of interesting things to be done.
So why have a piston that doesn't do this? Mostly quicker "slimestone" contraptions, I imagine. While being able to leave a block behind is great, it also means that you have to design around it, making things slower so that blocks don't get left behind when you don't want it to happen.
