Why would the sub-option be named "Dependencies for Demo" ?

If the tekui build system automatically detects the availability of
those dependencies to build/install the demos, then it is just fine:
you can have a sub-option called "Install demos" that adds the
necessary dependencies.

Or is tekui installing the demos unconditionally, and then they are
potentially broken on the target due to missing dependencies ?
