TKG 1.2 with or without HAProxy?

Currently planing for TKG 1.2 fresh install on vSphere 7.

I discovered that started from version 1.2, the Tanzu Kubernetes Grid does not require the HAProxy, as shown in figure below. (From doc: https://docs.vmware.com/en/VMware-Tanzu-Kubernetes-Grid/1.2/vmware-tanzu-kubernetes-grid-12.pdf)

But the installation of supervisor cluster(workload management) in vCenter 7 web requires HAProxy otherwise the supervisor cannot be enabled. At least I saw this when evaluating the architecture.

(Note that I'm not going to use NSX-T/network virtualization product)

Can anyone from VMware clarify this situation please? Will the fresh deployment of TKG 1.2 (with typical networking) be stopped by the need of HAProxy or not?

Thank you.
