Deployment considerations for beats containing dashboards

Beats often contain dashboards, which can be imported into Kibana by running the "setup" command. However, beats are typically data shippers that you install as agents on your servers.
Since, from a deployment perspective, the beat is installed and run near the "edge" of your network, whereas Kibana and Elasticsearch are "central" resources, why does it make sense to package Kibana dashboards with a beat? For example, if a beat is installed on a remote server to be used as a data shipper, does an admin also have to separately install it on or near the Kibana server in order to load the associated dashboards?
