It has little to none impact on full x86-like desktops/laptops.
ubuntu-touch (not desktop-next) has a set of upstart job overrides to
disable things that make no sense on a phone (e.g. tty1-6) and enable
other things (using org.ofono modem, usb on the go, etc) starting UI
in the session-init, for org.ofono modem ultimately operating against
android hardware from inside system-level lxc container. On a standard
x86-like laptop with a 3g modem one just talks direct to normal system
org.ofono without these hoops and loops.

You can check lp:~upstart-devel/upstart/upstart-jobs which has all
init.d scripts, upstart system/session jobs, systemd units for the
scope of affected jobs:
