[solved] What does this do in .install files? op=$1; shift; $op $*

I see a lot of packages with .install files that have code like this.  What does it do exactly, and when is it needed?  TIA.

op=$1
shift
$op $*
op=$1
shift
[ "$(type -t "$op")" = "function" ] && $op "$@"

There are relics from a time when install files needed them.  Now, they are not needed in the install file.
