Jello Pudding in cake recipes?

Hi! I keep coming across cake recipes that call for a Jello pudding mix. This really startled me as I dont understand what the benefit is...and a tad curious about what on earth a Jello pudding mix is doing in there? Has anyone tried this before? What does it do (better...or worse?) to a cake? Thanks!!
