They allow you to easily mass assign/unassign permissions for access to any private forums you have...or to have a moderator group.

This way you will not have to set permissions on a user by user basis if you want several moderators or if you have private forums, you can just create a group with the permissions you wish and addd users, users inside the group take on its permissions, when they are removed they go back to their own user permissions :)
