AMD Radeon driver changes CPU clocks & power limits (without Ryzen Master)

After a reboot, I got a 200MHz CPU boost in my radeon drivers (that I have previously configured in the BIOS):

I never asked the amd gpu drivers to do anything about my CPU. Just a slight optimization for my GPU, not the CPU.

 

Also, sometimes it resets my BIOS OC/power limits when loading a GPU profile (which also enforces a reboot). However, there are no CPU OC settings available in the radeon gui:

Also, I do not have ryzen master installed. I only use the BIOS to set the CPU overclocks and powerlimits.

why the does my gpu driver adjust my cpu settings?

 

P.S. It is a reference 5700 XT on a GB X470 Gaming 7 mainboard sporting a Ryzen 5600X

Radeon Software can overclock their CPU as well and there was a "bug" few months ago that will slightly overclock your CPU automatically.
