How about people who know that a bot generated article is useful?

One of Serbian Wikipedians works in Telecom Serbia ( http://www.telekom.yu ). 
Occasionally, they have to work with a phone central in some unknown village. 
So, they search for the placename on Wikipedia so that they could see where 
that place is exactly and other basic info.

Yes, they could find the same information by querying the database on the 
website of the Institute of Statistics of Serbia, but using Wikipedia is more 
convenient for them.
