Here's something that is kind of related that I ran into recently. If you have code that is checking the ownership and permissions of a file system object and attempting to correct the ownership and permissions if it is wrong, don't bother if the MNT_IGNORE_OWNERSHIP mount flag is set -- nothing will change 😀. In addition, that attempt to set the ownership and permissions WILL cause an FSEvent which causes the Finder (and other things listening to FSEvents) do wake up and do some work.
I had some code which was called quite often and was making that useless attempt to set the ownership and permissions -- it kept the Finder very busy.
