MS Build warnings from MySQL.Data dll with Win10 (Community Edition)...STILL!!

I'm sorry to be a hassle out there but I posted a message in September outlining an issue I had using MySQL Community with Connector .NET 8.0.21 and VB.NET, issue being that I was seeing tons of Windows System assemblies being indicated as dependencies when creating a setup program for my application.
Having asked Microsoft about this, they indicated that the dependencies were generated by MySQL.data dll

Asking the MySQL community here, I just received a message from someone who indicated that this at least did not show with 8.0.22 .NET connector.

Now, we're 5 months later and I AM using 8.0.22 and I STILL see the same list of dependencies being generated as soon as I create the setup program.

To be sure that no other package could be involved, I just wrote a few lines of code, defining the connectionstring and testing if the connection was open, nothing fancy...

And yet, 139 system assemblies get added as dependencies as soon as I add the setup project ingluding Google.ProtoBuff, K4os stuff and BouncyCastle.Crypto among others!!!

Could anyone pls try to explain what happens here when simply using a reference to MySQL.data?

Thx

Philippe
