Yes those are left-overs from Houdini's first RBD implementation from 
way back where Objects themselves had RBD properties and were in part 
driven via particles. circa 1998-99?
One feature from the original RBD setup was the notion of RBD 
hierarchies which lives in the current RBD implementation with "glue" 
and Glue RBD objects (which in fact can be set up to create hierarchical 
RBD relationships).
