[RFI] "No RFI" LED bulbs

I suspect that a LED lightbulb is preferred over incandescent due to the high vibration present.

An RFI free LED bulb is a very welcomed product for any ham.  But maybe someone much smarter than me can explain why a Genie garage door opener would need one. I'm pretty sure my garage door opener receives the "open door" command from the RF remote and then raises the door and turns on the light.  I think the light is unpowered until after the open command is received.  Are they concerned about RX interference to subsequent commands after the bulb is on?
