Why does the IB status get changed to 'Expired' after receiving a non-serial controlled IB trackable item?

According to <Note 276449.1> - Impact of Serial Control Type on Install Base Behaviour

Not serialized; no serial numbers are tracked in Install Base at all. That means that instances are not unique for Install Base. Therefore the quantity of an instance can be greater than 1. Just like onhand quantity in Inventory. New quantities of the same item can be added to the quantity of an existing instance as long as all other attributes are the same. When the quantity reaches 0 (e.g. by issuing all onhand quantity), the instance is expired automatically (end dated). When new quantities are received, the instance is reactivated. In general, whenever an item is received into inventory and the instance for that item would have the exact same values for all attributes as an existing instance, the existing instance is updated instead of a new one created.

The IB record status was set to 'Expired' because the QTY became 0 as the item is received into the subinv for repair. But the user needs to ship that back.

Why should the quantity in IB become 0?
