What is this process, “usagetrackingagent”, and why is it showing under activity monitor on MacBook? Does anyone with Mojave or a MacBook in general have this process under activity monitor. I quit the process and it hasn’t come back but was interested why it showed up in the first place. Thank you

It is running on my three Mojave laptops.
