Article indicates what this is but says nothing about "why" it should/could be used or "when" it should/could be used.

It would be used in any situation where you would want [email protected] to be forwarded to another email address. A catch all will increase the volume of spam you receive though, so I would recommend against its usage unless absolutely required.
