It's not meaningless. It causes the driver to actually
look at the drive, re-read the TOC of the CD (there is no
other way to find out if the CD was changed) and update
the device nodes in /dev.

No, the driver does *not* know when a disk is inserted,
unless it actually accesses the CD (caused by the "dd"
command above, for example).
Automatic detection and notification is not supported by
the hardware (unlike USB devices, for example).

That only works because Windows actively polls the drives
periodically, which is a bad hack, in my opinion.
