Many canned vegetables, including beans, are high in salt. Rinsing them lowere the sodium content. The liquid from the canned beans may affect the taste or fluid requirements of the recipe if included in the dish.

Ditto! Plus, the "liquid" in the canned beans is sort of gritty, and rinsing them gets rid of that. I rinse all my beans, except the ones canned in some sauce or other.

Many recipes that tell you to drain and rinse the beans also tell you to add salt and liquid to the dish you are making. Think about it. You might decide you can use the bean liquid, save yourself some time and effort, and cut back on those other ingredients.

Always drain the black beans. It seems like the liquid effects the taste especially these.
