What is the purpose of the "Boundary" linetype?

Graphisoft has long included the linetype "Boundary" as a standard. Does it have any purpose? It is set up as a dashed line with the dash set as 2.00E+12 and the gap set at 0, so always appears solid. What does 2.00E+12 mean?

I have no idea what that line is for.

It might just be something in the AUS template - it can be deleted.

 

2.00 E+12 means 0.000000000002

 

So very small dashes with no gaps.

I can see no purpose for it.
