Weight shenanigans, probably. I'm not sure if DM Necrozma's heavy enough to actually mitigate celesteela's Heavy Slam in the slightest, but even if it is, gaining a single power tier on an attack you already resist coming from a pokemon who's more oriented toward taking hits than giving them is a bit of a non-issue. On the other hand, you do not resist Low Kick and sit on that move's highest power tier by default, so halving you weight will get you some mileage on the off chance that the opponent's packing that particular move on top of having the effects of Rock Polish. It's a niche, but potentially game-changing difference.
