Default protective screen/weed control mesh under mulch?

Bag of cypress mulch I bought had a statement that "use of protective weed control mesh is not recommended"
Is this a way to sell more mulch to control the weeds or is there some technical reason that meek should not be used (definitely cheaper not to use the mesh, and what "porosity" mesh??

A property we purchased about 5 years back, we later learned has two areas where under the lava rock "mulch" there was mesh. There are NEVER any weeds there but it and the lava rock are a PIA when replacing plants. All I can tell you about the mesh is it's black and very thick; a good pair of sissors will cut it. Unlike the cypress, the lava doesn't vanish or move.
