> ...not seeing the benefit of this behavior

Me neither. Text box without content but attributes set (line, background...) are not shown in the Slides panel's thumbnail. However, the text box can be empty only when it is a placeholder defined in master. You cannot easily add empty text boxes on top. The trick is to add some text, then you make the background in white, and finally remove the text. This empty box can be used to hide the background (weird workflow) and is shown in the Slides panel.

So we could also resolve the issue as WFM since the "text box" is rather a placeholder. Not much benefit from having only a border on a slide.
