Why put mtb gearing on a gravel bike?

Good lord!  I cant get over the size of that headtube and the length of the steerer.   Makes the bike look a bit like a farm gate.

Is there actually a market for such an off road focused bike in the UK - look at that tiny front ring.  Cant but feel an MTB would fit this bill better.
