I would consider them spandrels. In particular, byproducts of having evolved pleasure as a mechanism for driving behavior.

The "too broad" flag, to me, is more for technical how-to type questions that are the norm on the original stack exchange. I'm not sure if broad questions are so bad in a scientific pedagogical situation.
