Why Cloudflare does not copy DKIM record?

Hi, when pointing an existing domain do Cloudflare, it identifies DNS records. For example, it identifies SPF record and adds it to its DNS records. But it doesn’t do that with DKIM, one has to do it manually. Why is that?

Cloudflare’s scan is a big guessing game. Without the permissions to grab the entire zone file from an existing host, it has to guess at common hostnames. That’s why the final step is to ask you to verify all records.

One option is to Export/Import the zone file yourself:

I see, thank you!
