Why do I see an Owner = Splunk Dispatcher (splunk-system-user) in the Jobs managment view?

In the UI I navigate to Jobs and see entries identified as Owner "splunk-system-user" why is that?

If the owner is shown as "Splunk Dispatcher (splunk-system-user)", this means the scheduler ran a job due to a scheduled saved search for which your role has access to view. In 4.1, the owner is just "splunk-system-user".
