Why this for?
Why to simulate HLS playlist chunks,
when is used TSHTTP protocol?
Better to implement HLS than this not so useful feature.

I think TS (Transport Stream) means a constant data Flow.
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/MPEG_transport_stream

And HLS (who has chunklist) means M3U8 or so.

TSHTTP is continuous stream requested by http url
HLS is dynamic playlist *.M3U8 with point to *.TS chunks stored on web served folder
Continuously downloading them

There is some positives and negatives but that's other thing.

Freesat and Smart IPTV in certain television models (also Smart IPTV for Android).

I think that apps do not play correctly if they do not know the type of data flow

The stream type is in HTTP header (mime type). The identification using the suffix is a bit bad idea for HTTP streams.
