Anemone splitting: good or bad?

Is it good or bad when an anemone splits? There are mixed opinions on what anemone splitting signifies.

Some claim that anemones split when they are under stress. In that scenario, the splitting would be a survival mechanism where more anemones = a greater chance that at least one survives.

Others say that anemones also split when they are healthy and the water and lighting conditions are optimal. My Bubble Tip Anemone has split multiple times and the tank is established and the water parameters are stable, leading me to believe it is not splitting due to stress. As long as the anemones look healthy, I would not be concerned about their splitting.
