Surely it's external by default or is this some weird 'moto thing'?

If you use an internal you can increase the storage on which you install apps but you cannot eject it to put into something else. If you use as external you can use it to store just files (music,photos etc) and you can eject it and put it into something else and then back.
I used to use internal as it meant I could install another 60gb of apps, but it eventually failed despite it being a Sandisk high spec card built for android android (supposedly). I then opted to use my replacement as external only at the sacrifice of fewer apps, but more peace of mind that my card will not become corrupted/unreadable.

It's a feature of some of the later versions of android.
