Rubbing oil on steaks before grilling...what's up with that?

I keep seeing all the cooks on TV and in recipes recommend that steaks be oilde before grilling. I have grilled thousands of steaks over the past 50 years and never oiled one. Particularly if one is cooking a ribeye, it is already heavily laden with fat. I use only lots of kosher salt or sea salt. What am I missing here?
