Default Down stem Nut

I was just wondering if anyone knows what the purpose of these on the bottom of the down stem is? It seems to me like they just get in the way of diffusers and are not really needed. Any insight would be great thanks!

Well my KM butterfly had a bell-ish thing on the end of the downstem. I guess it's for looks?

Maybe to hide the "rough cut" end of the pipe, but I have no clue

The nut itself is pretty much sleeved on the pipe, so no threads are exposed.

Why not, it's nice to have the rumble. Relaxing.
