There's one legitimate case for that when you are able to leverage some of the tree shaking and unused code elimination during bundling - if you set up webpack correctly, for example, you can import individual functions from lodash while still including the whole lodash package in your dependencies, but at bundle time drop all of the unused functions.

Other than this case, I agree that often context is more important - lodash is such a specific example haha
