what is the function of .git/branches/?

  currently proofing "pro git" book, and an example of a new repo
doesn't show a .git/branches/ directory, but initializing a new repo
with current version of 2.13.6 *does* show an initially empty
directory by that name. however, AFAICT, branches are still tracked
under .git/refs/heads/, so what's with that branches/ directory?
