Why Ligatures?

I guess I don't understand the reasoning behind having ligatures in a
codepage. For example, Latin 00 proposal wants to add OE and oe
ligatures to Latin-1.

Aren't these cases that the display logic should handle, but the data
actually is 2 letters? Is there a semantic difference if the display
showed 2 characters? When I search for oe ligature code value,
shouldn't I match with the octet pair o & e?
