Molex to eSATA converter

What is the point of using Molex to eSATA converter?
But what is the purpose of using it on the modern build?

I am betting that it is a Molex Power plug to the SATA power plug. I searched for molex to eSATA converter and found nothing. Tons of Molex to SATA power connectors.

Long ago, when eSATA first came out, a motherboard I bought had a SATA to eSATA bracket but also on that bracket was a 4-pin molex connector. I have no idea what it was for and I never actually used it. I see similar devices with 4-pin molex on a PCI bracket are still being sold so there must be some use for them. Maybe the eSATA thought was that you would still source power from the PSU?
