[Distutils] Is there any sense to put setuptools as a requirement?

I've seen people putting 'setuptools' in 'install_requires' in
setup.py starting with import from setuptools like this:
from setuptools import setup, find_packages

Does it make any sense?
In what circumstances should 'setuptools' be listed in
'install_requires' or 'setup_requires'?
