Strava Routes export as Tracks not Routes

Mt. Kenya

Love the ease of use of creating routes in Strava vs Gaia. 

According to GPX specs, routes are plans and tracks are actuals. For whatever reason, Strava’s GPX files are using the <trkpt> instead of <rtept> tags.  Is there a reason that when you create a Route in Strava it exports them as a Track in the GPX file?  Thank you!
