This feature is exclusive to Bedrock Edition.

Unlike the official Java Edition server software, the unofficial Bedrock Edition server software usually lack many things that are present in Bedrock Edition vanilla server that are built into the Bedrock Edition's client. The servers, excluding the official Bedrock Server Software, are also free of Mojang source code. In many cases, Bedrock Edition server software can outperform the official server software and can provide features beyond the capabilities of the vanilla bedrock server, like massive multiplayer experience. Unless stated otherwise, most Bedrock Edition server software are open-source, free of charge, and free-for-all use, including commercial use, given the license that's included.

Most Bedrock Edition server networks, including the featured servers, uses unofficial software as Mojang's official server software for Bedrock Edition has only been recently released and is currently in public alpha testing.
