No VPN app needs background data enabled to work properly?

i recently noticed that VPN apps no more prompts to enable background data (on marshmallow), while when i used to use VPNs on older Android devices let it be GingerBread, JellyBean, not sure about KitKat it would flash window asking to enable background data first.

I might have mistaken altogether, if so disabling background data (not only for VPN app but) of a device affects in any way the functioning of said VPN app ?
