Why does any EN only installation ever require any locale package?

You need at least the English locale, and there are a few to choose from.

Linux being multiuser natively, it supports many languages and locales
since about ever. The idea is to have them all installed, and each of
your users can choose a different language or locale.

which makes like zero sense on a machine that is logically used only
by a single user.

That's why there is locale-gen on Debian, so that the huge size
of glibc locales (diskspace, download time) can be traded against
CPU time.
