[Android] What is READ_INTERNAL_STORAGE permission for?

I can’t find the READ_INTERNAL_STORAGE in https://developer.android.com/reference/android/Manifest.permission.

From https://developer.android.com/guide/topics/data/data-storage#filesInternal:

By default, files saved to the internal storage are private to your app, and other apps cannot access them (nor can the user, unless they have root access). This makes internal storage a good place for internal app data that the user doesn’t need to directly access. The system provides a private directory on the file system for each app where you can organize any files your app needs.

Reading from/writing to AsyncStorage and FileSystem.documentDirectory requires no permission and appears to have the same functionality as the above description, so what is this permission used for?
