This is an artefact of having the two packages. The package system does
not support alternatives. I have posted a few times regarding this. I
don't think it does any harm, but many people will find they have both
org-plus-contrib as well as org installed. The main draw back is that
updates can take longer due to downloading org twice. 

I and others have asked a few times why the packages are structured in
this way, but nobody seems able to provide the rationale. Personally, I
think we should just have an org package and an org-contrib package
which depends on the org package.
