There Are Benefits
Even Google have a separate analytics tool you can still get handy info via the Search Console, such as how many visitors and more to the point the keywords and terms they are searching for. Also you are able to observe how many have clicked on these keywords and then try to include these terms in future posts to improve your popularity with people searching for those terms.

This does make sense when you think about it, after they know who you are and that you have verified who you are. There is no real downside to Google knowing you are running a quality blog site, although I guess you if you are to do black hat Seo (sneaky search engine tactics such as buying links and purposely over using keywords which will eventually be identified as spam) you may not wish to submit your site to Google Search Console.
