I think this is deliberate
talking to one of the people responsible for this madness he said that if you leave a very visible pot mark they are forever getting robbed
so he uses the least conspicuous buoys which he sets at low tide with a short rope that pulls the buoy under for most of the time
To a point, I can understand why he does this because it must frustrating spending time and money setting the pots and not getting a catch but really you can't behave like this these days with the coastal waters being so busy
