I don't use WordPress (I don't need the stress of coping with *all* its
security flaws, and I write my own pages directly in HTML+CSS), but
you'll find that without deliberately installing extras, you'll only
get basic facilities.

Though, maybe you don't need them all, it'll depend on what you're
doing with it.  That'll be why they're not automatically dragged in
when you install it - there are various kinds of databases, you only
need the one(s) you're going to use, and often you can choose your
poison rather than it insisting on a particular one.  My basic
webserver install on Fedora didn't install anything that interpreted
PHP, but I'd expect that it'd get dragged in as a dependency if you
install something like WordPress that heavily uses PHP.  That part of
your install surprises me.

* Over the many years I've run a HTML & CSS only website, I've seen
countless failed hack attempts in the logs on the various front-ends
and back-ends that I don't have installed, it's on-going and never-
ending.  I find it easy enough to hand craft what I want to do, and I
can make it do whatever it can do, as opposed to learning all the
foibles of a content manager system, and be stuck with all its
limitations (I really dislike fill-in-the-blanks template systems). 
There's also lock-in to consider, I can move my website files over to
any different webserver, and it'll just work.  I don't expect it to be
that easy if I were using one of the various publishing systems.  But
it's all a matter of what you want to do, and which you feel more
comfortable at learning.
