I'm curious, what would be the reasoning behind disabling this chip? So far what I've read suggests the chip is merely for making it easier to find other devices to AirDrop to and similar. I'm not sure how this can be bad.
It's there for the privacy proponents wanting to disable it should they wish to.

Since it’s there for all devices not just those with the “chip” what else would this shut down? Has to be more than just that chip on the 11s iPhones. I’ll let others find out what else this disables.

If you don't have the U1 chip you won't an option to shut anything down.

In the Wallet & Apple Pay section of Settings, I’m thinking the text below the Express Transit Card section should say “...and may *NOT* be available when your iPhone needs to be charged.”

Right?

Nope, that is correct. Express Transit works in a low power mode, even if you cant turn your phone on apparently.

Edit:
"
On iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR, you can use power reserve with your Express Transit cards. Power reserve enables you to quickly pay for rides and is available for up to five hours when your iPhone needs to be charged.
To see if Express Transit cards are available when your iPhone needs to be charged, press the side button. Doing this often may significantly reduce the power reserve for Express Transit cards. If you choose to power off your iPhone, this feature will not be available.

"Checking for mail..." on Wifi still takes up to two minutes most tries. Tested on multiple networks. Never takes more than five seconds on cellular.

Have already tried resetting network settings, no change.

Seems it cuts off location services for BT and wifi as well.

<<Turning this off disables the ultra wideband (UWB) chip in your iPhone. Why is this important? Since that chip isn't approved for use globally, disabling it may be necessary if you're in a country where its use isn't supported.

When you toggle that slider, you'll get a message that it may affect your Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and UWB performance, but it's nice to know the option is there if needed. >>>
