That's the new normal, following a change to setup.exe.
Previously, dependencies would have been added instantly when you
selected a package. The problem with that was that those dependencies
weren't deselected if you changed your mind about a package. Also, it
got in the way when you cycled through the package actions to get to
'Uninstall', and sometimes people were surprised about the number of
packages being quietly pulled in by their selections. Therefore now
the dependencies being added automatically are always listed on the
'Resolve Dependencies' page.
Seems the wording on that page still needs some fine-tuning though. I
presume it was the 'Unmet Dependencies Found' line that made you think
there's a problem?
