Yet another roller furling question

Any idea why roller furling jib would have about a 30" leash thimbled to the head? It leaves about two feet of the extrusion on the roller furler visible at the top of the headstay. The foot seems to be appropriately secured relative to the drum, etc. It's just like the PO for some reason installed a smaller than intended sail . . . shorter luff than normal.
