Hi SamSungtwo,
You need to agree to the telephone permission because if you are using the app and you get a call from someone. Then, it makes the app still work while talking to someone.

Why can't the telephone permissions be denied?

I am an app developer and yes it does sound wierd just because of keeping the app in background or ablity to use the app while in call telephone permissions are not required. Might be it is using to provide app based features based on carriers (one such example is this app: samsung members regardless of your phone firmware when you insert the sim it reads the carrier info and provide your actual country specific information/community feeds)

(Might be that app is using Phone permission to access these – access your phone number and network info)

What I find weird is this app is not necessary and it was installed with android 10 and I can't uninstall.

You can't uninstall system apps, but you can disable it with adb or one of Package Disabler apps on the Play Store. But be careful, disabling some system apps can cause problems.

I am familiar with and use adb. However no unnecessary app should be installed especially not allowing permissions to not be changed.

Take it up with Samsung, or quit complaining & actually do something about apps you don't like.
