It is for function.
It helps it to operate if it gets dirty or muddy as some of the assault rifles do under extreme
conditions. it is also good for snow or icy conditions.
Most of us keep our rifles clean and free of these problems, so it becomes more for looks.
Also just like jewelling it helps keep some lubricant on the bolt longer making the bolt
