    This is a form of bracketing which can be used to indicate that
    material notated on one staff in a system is to be read as belonging
    to the adjacent staff. One situation where this might be needed is, as
    you previously surmised, for the clear indication of voice leading
    where it would otherwise be ambiguous.

    Does that adequately explain what you've observed?
