Well, it's just such a mechanism, where to apply - you know better. I have had experience when there is a switchboard, it has a bunch of different moieties that you do not want to deal with, then on the higher, I did a neutral. Or even had a case - configured equipment without matching the vlains, and on the other side are configured specific vlains, on your own do a neutral and get control. Or there was a VoIP phone with a trunk port, a computer connected to it, and you do not know the ownerships, you make a key and all fall into one ownership. Or there was another case: a chain of switches managed-unmanaged-managed-managed, unmanaged vlains transits, but it's weird, I had to configure a nativet.

But in general, the practice is flawed. It is actively used where one switch is in your area of responsibility, but the adjacent equipment is not (or you have just been charged with it)

For example, you will use VoIP phones that do not understand VoiceVlan. Then the port must be configured as a hybrid, the phone traffic will be tagged and the PC traffic will go to native.

native vlan = untagged vlan
This is actually a vlan for the access port.

That's not true, or not really true.
native vlan = untagged vlan

this is not always the case, you can tag
This is actually a vlan for the access port.

For example, a port that is usually a trunk port, but sometimes you have to plug something into it in the access, a regular computer, for example.
Here is what will fly without a tag on this port, inside the switch will be marked with this native vlan
