Maybe to help absorb heat from the surrounding areas other than the chips?

UPDATE:
I ordered some copper shims from Amazon. 20 of them for less than $5. They were pretty cheap, and took about 6 weeks for delivery, because they were coming from China. I had to use a very hard ceramic stone to remove any burrs etc.

So my temps are now 15 degrees C less.

Cleaning very thing and adding Arctic Silver to each pad, then adding the copper shim:

The heat pipe is now pressed on the GPU and the CPU that has a very small dot of Arctic Silver:

Thanks. It now runs at 65°C instead of 80°C playing Half Life 2. I also ordered a backup heat pipe assembly that FP posted in a previous thread. It came with no thermal pad.
