Blinker As Kill Switch

I have a 95 ZJ, bought it 16 years ago in 2003 with 69k on it, it was in great shape and not modded or scratched and had street tires on it.

It has always had a "kill switch", you can't start it if unless you put on the blinker... without the blinker it makes a sound that is reminiscent of Jim Carey making the most annoying sound in the world from Dumb and Dumber (really it kinda sounds like that) this a thing?

I have never come across another jeep with this "feature"... anyone out there know anything about this, has my jeep just been broken the whole time and I just didn't know?

My initial thought is someone wired the blinker hot to the starter wire hot on the ignition switch wiring harness - but who knows lol.

I've seen other cars wired this way. I guess it's a relatively not uncommon way to wire a kill switch. Should be easy to undo if you want.
