Display (Built-in) Columns
Display columns are used to display non-data elements in a table. They only require an
headerin the column definition. They do not need an
accessorFn, as they are not meant to connect to your data at all.
Display columns do not have any processing features, such as sorting, filtering, grouping, etc. enabled on them by default.

Display Column Definition Options

Or maybe you want to enable a feature that is off by default for display columns, such as column ordering or pinning.
