Please help me understand the "Swiss Cheese" loop example

Recommended Posts

I'm reading the official document on Loop: https://www.sidefx.com/docs/houdini/model/looping.html 

The example it provides look like this:

It seems to do the same thing (the "Swiss Cheese" effect) with the same nodes as the official example, minus the loops.

The official document doesn't provide an HIP file so I can't study it. Could someone enlighten me why they use loops here?
