Why does installing DB Connect require a restart on a linux box?

Path Finder

I'm running CentOS for Splunk Enterprise and am installing DB Connect to connect to different databases. Why does this install require a restart? Is there a kernel module? I just want to understand the reasoning behind a restart for this add on.
