Why lxde in qtile

i was checking my mice in xinput then i found my system has already installed something "keyboard and mouse", opened that i found the process name is lxinput.
also i fetch packages shows my wm=lg3d. why? shouldn't it be qtile?
i am a beginner trying to switch to tiling window managers. why DE is here? cz afaik DE is not needed, what happens i uninstall this?
i can see pamac tray, pavucontrol tray is gone from my bar. why? and did I done anything risky? should i re-install lxde?

Garuda (2.6.5-1):
  System install date:     2022-08-04
  Last full system update: 2022-08-06
  Is partially upgraded:   No
  Relevant software:       NetworkManager
  Windows dual boot:       Probably (Run as root to verify)
  Snapshots:               Snapper
  Failed units:            swapfile.swap

DEs have a WM, the reverse isn't true.

My guess is that the Qtile team didn't make a package for everything.

Also, most Garuda ISOs come with a VERY opinionated L&F and workflow.
