Front infrared flash continually flashing

   With all of the spying and facial recognition etc. going on it's a little unsettling to find one's phone possibly doing just that.  I've had this PinePhone with PMOS for less that a year and finally remembered to check on this activity since accidentally finding 2 other phones (N900 and LG V20 with aftermarket OSes) doing the same thing.  To be fair the PinePhone IR flash does stop after several minutes in the sleep mode which the others didn't and I understand that  it's used as a proximity sensor but still....
Please explain what you think is happening, and why it shouldn't be. It sounds like you're conflating the operation with the proximity sensor with that of the front camera.
