Ah, OK. I was confused by the "which XML files" phrase.

The use case was that, over time, an import step might be updated. If you
had installed your site before the update, then your configuration might
also need to be updated. Some version of the setup tool (maybe never
publicly released) tracked the 'version' last installed for each step,
and would show you the steps which were out-of-date, or had never been
installed, in a way which made them easy to distinguish. I think there
was a convenience button which ran only such steps, as well.
