Right, but they are helpful for debugging, verification and maintenance.

With explicit closing tags, it is immediately visible where the author
(or their tool) intended the element to end. Modifying the HTML
generation logic only involves ensuring that nesting is not broken.

With implicit tags, browsers can and will infer tag nesting on their
own, and have an intricate system of rules to do so. Modifying the
logic involves carefully working out where browsers would infer the
missing tags, and then work with that knowledge to ensure that nesting
won’t break.
