Why would we use a Popup node if Control node does the same thing?

In this video, we replace our Popup node with a Control node to fix an anchoring problem. That leaves me wondering why we would ever want to use a Popup node in the first place if the Control node has the same functionality. Any ideas?

Popup nodes are really designed for menus, so I figured this was a good use case. We don’t have to make them centered either - we can have them popup over the object we’re interacting with (for example, if we’re making a context menu)
