REMOVE SPLUNK PACKAGE in Solaris 11.3 SPARC server

Loves-to-Learn Lots

I need to remove the splunk pkg version currently running on a server Solaris 11.3 SPARC,
when I run the pkg uninstall command in dry mode I see that it will be removing 2 pkgs shell/ksh and splunkforwarder,
I am not sure why it will remove shell/ksh since I have asked only to remove the splunkforwarder pkg.
Any suggestion will be great. Thanks.

server1# pkg uninstall -nv application/splunkforwarder --> dry run
