I think I understand how the command is supposed to work, what I was
curious about was in what situations a user would want to use it. Is
it when reading the manual maybe, having point over a "thing", or
maybe when browsing Emacs lisp code?

I would guess that your answer to the above will be "yes", and "yes,
