Why are most of my cable/coax wires disconnected?

I'm researching an ethernet-over-coax solution for my home. In my closet where all the cabling meet, all but two coax cables are disconnected. There are 14 cables altogether, with 12 cables entirely disconnected, and 2 cables connected to one another with a female/female connector.

Disconnected coax cables in closet.

If this looks standard, can someone explain basic home coax wiring?

  • Why are nearly all my coax cables disconnected?
  • Is this related to FCC leakage regulations?
  • Do each of the 12 other cables go to wall plates in the house, or is this really just 6 lines that are simply disconnected at the moment?
