Network Connections - why am I seeing a wired ethernet connection - and can't remove it?

My laptop with Manjaro and Kernel 6.1.12-1-MANJARO is showing two network connections.

I only run wifi on this device - (works with no issues) - but I am seeing a wired ethernet connection “lo” that shows it is connected… of course I have no ethernet cable plugged in.

I’ve tried removing that connection but as soon as it is removed - it ‘recreates’ itself and reconnects.

Not sure if it is causing any issues - doesn’t seem to affect my network usage - but it is strange.

My other laptop (with a different kernel) - does not have that “lo” wired ethernet connection
