Why does a `standalone` document set `TeX-PDF-from-DVI`?

I recently made some graphics which I outsourced into their own files. I
used the `standalone` document class for this. For some reason, in these
files, the variable `TeX-PDF-from-DVI` is automatically set.

Minimal example:

> \documentclass[tikz,border=5pt]{standalone}
> \begin{document}
> \begin{tikzpicture}
>   \node{test!};
> \end{tikzpicture}
> \end{document}

I could not find out why this variable is always set in `standalone`
documents. However, I could not find any mention of the string
`standalone` in the source code of auctex (or in my init file).

My questions: 1.) How did this happen? 2.) How can I turn off this feature?

Have a nice day!
