OpenSSL server sending certificate chain(inc. root cert) during handshake

Right, I realize it doesn't have to be sent, my questions are why is it sent and is there a way to force OpenSSL to not send it?
You may have answered the first question as to "why?". But is OpenSSL doing this just to make problems easier to diagnose? Are there other reasons?
More importantly, can I force OpenSSL to not send the root cert?

The root cert is not used for validation, so it doesn't have to be
sent. However, sending it does no harm, and it is useful for humans
who are attempting to diagnose problems, it allows them to see what
what root cert they are expected to have locally for sucessful cert
