I see no reason to signal a turn when no-one is around. Nor is it necessary for a bike to stop when no-one is around.

One reason to do both: habit. Signalling and - on bikes - at least slowing for stop signs needs to be a habit. The alternative to habitually signalling - on two wheels or four - being to habitually not signal.

Another reason to always signal: sometimes someone is, in fact, around. Me, for example, when the slow-moving cyclist I was passing yesterday suddenly veered left without signalling (or looking).
