Kinda of a dumb question honestly, but. Since when have emotes been considered a cosmetic item?

I just read the whole honor update promo page and what caught me off guard was that with each level up, you get an honor capsule and inside each capsule you get a guaranteed cosmetic item. And I noticed that when reaching level 4, that cosmetic item is an emote. Which surprised me (not in a bad way, dont worry). So I was just curious. And, like the title of the thread says, Since when are emotes considered as a cosmetic item? (I understand that it´s an extra, but calling it a cosmetic just caught me off guard that´s all).
