That is bizarre. The piping should have terminated at the hose connections.

Obviously this is not a mistake - somebody went to a lot of work to add this cross connection. Can anyone explain to me why this was done?

The loop at the bottom looks kinked, maybe by design Hillbilly hot recirculating system? I've wondered about a hookup like this to keep hot water in a line. Like when you are taking a shower, cut the shower head off to lather and when turned back on get hit with cold water momentarily (the water being held in the hot water line cooling). Same thing for a clothes or dishwasher. It seems though, without valving, there would be a big use of hot water.
