Android location permissions (native reagent)

I receive a popup asking for permission to use the location of the devices. I want it, but I wonder why I get it since I compile with version 28 of the SDK. Hoping to understand this, it'll help me with another bug.

On devices older than version 23 SDK, permissions are automatically granted if they appear in the manifest.

In my manifesto


buildscript {
ext {
buildToolsVersion = "28.0.3"
minSdkVersion = 16
compileSdkVersion = 28
targetSdkVersion = 28
supportLibVersion = "28.0.0"
googlePlayServicesAuthVersion = "15.0.1"
