For me they do, because in between those 6 clicks I get to see the current yield rates, extractor head and resource locations.
This means that this process allows me to adust extractor heads, if I want to. Usually I don’t, but those clicks in between allow me that choice.
If I just had to push a button ‘reset all’ I wouldn’t notice all those things.
Just like I wouldn’t notice different ores in an asteroid belt if I could tell my mining drones to ‘mine all’. Less effort indeed, but I’m not sure if it’s making gameplay better.
