I would imagine he's doing it because it's in the handbook.

21.4.5 Remove /usr/obj

As parts of the system are rebuilt they are placed in directories which
(by default) go under /usr/obj. The directories shadow those under /usr/src.

You can speed up the ``make world'' process, and possibly save yourself some 
dependency headaches by removing this directory as well.

Some files below /usr/obj may have the immutable flag set (see chflags(1) 
for more information) which must be removed first.

    # cd /usr/obj
    # chflags -R noschg *
    # rm -rf *
