You seem to believe with-output-to-temp-buffer is only about help mode.
Now there are places in emacs that show otherwise, for example, check
display-completion-list. The doc says the macro runs
temp-buffer-setup-hook which normally sets up the buffer in help mode.
So entering help mode is the default behaviour but not the only one, and
the decision is up to the user.
