Chabad folks: do you refrain from eating bread for seudah shlishit?

Just read this on wikipedia and am curious as to why some refrain from eating bread for seudah shlishit if someone can please explain:

“While most poskim (Jewish legal decisors) encourage people to eat bread at this meal, most agree that eating cake or fruit will minimally suffice. However, many Jews of the Hasidic Chabad-Lubavitch community have a custom specifically to refrain from eating bread at this meal, as do some German Jews.”

It’s also news to me that bread is not required but encouraged as I thought it was (I’ve been eating at least a bit of matzah if not a roll to make sure I can say birkat hamazon afterwards bc I thought this was the halacha).
