No, this was not planned.

Due to a bug in iOS 15, the Music app takes up space in the dock and becomes the default service

Users are complaining that the default Music app on iOS is behaving strangely. After downloading from the App Store, the service takes up space in the dock, throwing out one of the previously added applications from there – without any warnings or prompts. In addition, in some cases, the application becomes the default music service for Siri.

Usually, Siri will ask which application you want to listen to music through when you first ask it to play something. In the future, it remembers the choice, and the dialog box is not repeated. But some users complain that after reinstalling Music, this service becomes the default setting, regardless of the previous choice.

It is not yet clear how common this problem is and what causes it. Lifehacker tested this on an iPhone from which Music was deleted a long time ago. After downloading the application, it did indeed dock, replacing Telegram, although it did not install as a standard application for Siri.

Developer Kevin Archer, who was one of the first to discover this bug, noted that the application only kicks third-party applications from the dock . If you only have Apple apps in your Dock, Music will install as normal and won't replace anything.
