Although, in this setup the hanks are obviously not going to be used at all because it will furl around it's own wire luff.
I think maybe the previous owner didn't like this type of furler, so he added the hanks, hooked up the furler assembly to the boat exactly as you show the photo. Then he hanked the sail onto the wire halyard. This would bring the sail a bit higher off the deck but shouldn't be a problem as long as there is room at the head. You would need a second halyard to do this.
With this setup, you could go back and forth from hank on to furl depending on what your preference is.
 I might be wrong, but this looks like a pretty small furler for a Cal 21.
