It’s a clever way of keeping the stitches close to each other while you are doing short-rows, so that you don’t create gaps when you turn around. Doing short-rows also incorporates picking up and knitting the wraps once you’re done with the short-rows, so that they become invisible.

If you use the same technique to hide purl wraps as you do to hide knit wraps, the right side of your work will be a mess. The problem with the “intuitive” way of picking up purl wraps is that it places the wrap in front of the stitch.
