Every System Information Block has it's own purpose within the system like SIB10 and 11 are used for ETWS primary and secondary notifications, SIB12 is used to carry CMAS notifications. Similarly, SIB16 carries information related to GPS time and UTC i.e. Coordinated Universal Time. UE may use such information for different different purposes. It may be used in case of services like MBMS.
