Is a Discover Section in Search Console a Sign of Quality?

Some site owners have noticed that they have a Discover section within Google Search Console, whereas other publishers are missing this information.

The question was put to Google’s John Mueller on Twitter, whether this is in fact a sign of quality.

John confirmed that rather than taking the lack of Discover information as a sign of quality, it is instead missing due to Google not having enough data for the site in the Discover feed:
