Why does UpdateMgr install require sql permissions to msdb database?

I would like to Install UpdateManager and host the DB on our production SQL DB.

The install requires that the sql account have db_own permissions to the msdb database. I understand that it can be removed after the install.

What I would like to know is why it needs permissions to that db? I don;t see any roll up jobs like the vcenter install creates. The DB Admins want to know what the install is doing that requires that permission.

Thanks.

I believe the reason is so that VUM can create scheduled tasks within the MSDB database which is done during install -
