Towels really antimicrobial?

I went to buy some new kitchen towels, and every brand labeled theirs as being treated to be antimicrobial, and that it "doesn't wash off".
Is this a legit claim? What are these towels actually treated with?

(I did try searching for an answer.)
I've managed to survive and be quite content with all the microbes festering on my kitchen towels for many decades--I don't want towels with any kind of weird chemical treatments!
If this is just marketing hype, I might go ahead and buy them. I want to avoid the extra work of trying to find untreated kitchen towels. (Rolling my eyes at stupid trends that inconvenience me. ;-)
