software for counting buildings use it if you feel it might be useful otherwise just ignore it.

It was originally designed so that feedback could be given to mappers tagging buildings in a city without resorting to overpass and other more technical solutions.

It shows how many tags have been added and how rich they are.  It generates both list of tags used building= and other associated tags such as building:levels gives a count by each.

A CSV file is generated which means it is fairly simple to graph the data using a spreadsheet such as LibreOffice Calc.

It can be used to verify the correct tags have been used for example parts of Africa have many variations of Semi-Permanent for building and it might be useful for projects using on the ground mappers in cities.
