Are OOTB Agents still running by default on Pega 8x?


I have just noticed that OOTB Agents seem to be running in Pega 8x by default as below.

Admin Studio

Agents running

I was surprised to see as many as 83 are running! I was believing that Agent is now legacy and it was converted to Job Scheduler and Queue Processor starting with 8.1. Now Pega version is 8.4 but I still see 83 Agents on top of 15 QPs and 19 Job Schedulers. Shouldn't all Agents disabled or stopped by default as the same things exist in QP and JS? Or 15 QPs and 19 JS are completely different purpose and have nothing to do with Agent? Do we need to manage three of them?
