Birds tied to poles

I started to see a lot of Birds tied to poles around my city. Some of them don't seem to move for days. What is the deal with them?

Idk, I've noticed it to. They seem to be Bird-branded locks too which is even weirder.

Weird... Have any pictures of the Bird lock or the scooter tied up?

I could see them doing that while they wait for a repair tech or someone else to pick it up, or if they pick it up I guess.

As you can see this is an official Bird setup. (Actually you can't see, the uploaded pix is too small. The lock has the Bird logo). These scooters still show as available for a ride. I noticed that the majority of Segways have these locks, but none of the Bird Ones.
Looks like an antitheft feature.
