I'm going to take a wild guess and just say that it's there to show you that the the tire is new cause if it had been riden, they'd be gone or cut down. So, it's just one way they can 'show' you that the tire is new without just washing off a recently used tire and saying it's new.

When you're cranked over enough to have them contacting the road they develop a static charge and prevent the tyre from sliding out on you.
