I can only help you with the C++ part but not explain why it makes sense to
call that code.

The code calls SwFormat::GetRegisteredIn which is actually
SwClient::GetRegisteredIn (through the inheritance hierarchy
SwFormat->SwModify->SwClient). SwClient::GetRegisteredIn returns a pointer
to a SwModify where the code actually assumes that it always returns a

It looks a bit like it is using some generic writer code to store the
inheritance of the styles.

That depends on all the code around it. Here the code just assumes that all
returned SwModify objects are actually SwFormat objects.
