NFL queries from PFT articles, part 1 Kelly doesnt care about Depth Charts

As I am from europe I have many questions about the NFL and things I dont understand, however surely if teams are mandated to produce depth charts, surely they have to be accurate or the whole concept is pointless?
Personally I agree with his reasoning but imagine if every team released depth charts purely because “they had to” – they could just release them in alphabetical order for example, what then?
Seems like the league wants accurate depth charts, or why ask teams to produce them?
Why does the league ask for them anyway?
I can imagine Kelly being in breach of league requirements at this rate if the depth charts are at all important to the league.
