Though I agree with your thought process, I would imagine this falls in line with DUI check points. Or any other random stops the state decides to check.
I once was stopped early Sunday morning, on a country road, to verify registration and insrance was up to date. I assumed it was quicker to supply the requested information than to argue the legality of the search. As previously stated, sometimes it is easier to go with the flow.
