Reason: Mention disabling of dbus services through use of systemctl mask and overrides in /etc/dbus-1/services (Discuss in Talk:D-Bus#)

D-Bus is a message bus system that provides an easy way for inter-process communication. It consists of a daemon, which can be run both system-wide and for each user session, and a set of libraries to allow applications to use D-Bus.

dbus is pulled and installed as a dependency of systemd and user session bus is started automatically for each user.
