You are spot on.
The suggestion is to keep oil from going everywhere when working on the system. It will keep most of it in the tank instead of on the shop floor. I personally just drain what i can out of the system before i work. What leaks out is just a loss, i figure its a way of putting more clean oil into the system too, it never hurts.
