ASP.NET Core - Slider - Accessibility alerts - "Redundant title text"

Running WAVE on websites that use the Slider throw up a load of alerts to do with "Redundant title text" and "Unlabeled form control with title".

You can see examples of this on any demo page such as the Basic Usage one.

Can you please remove the offending attributes - or come up with values that don't throw these issues up? I'm not sure if they're in place to work with ToolTips, but if we elect not to support ToolTips (which is default behaviour) then they are effectively redundant.

I don't want to have to do this myself in script because it is an unnecessary overhead and may cause downstream issues in your code.
