What is the "Docker subnet" option used for?

I noticed there is an option in docker-desktop that allow to change the “Docker subnet”.

However, I’m struggling to find documentation on what it is exactly.

I’ve done the usual docker network inspect, checked the WSL distro and my Windows host for routes but I don’t see that default subnet (192.168.65.0/28) being used anywhere. What is this used for?
