XXC front shock spring question

On the front shocks for a new ds450 xxc there are, from the bottom up, main springs>spacer>small springs.

What's the point of the spacer and small springs?
With the DS just sitting at free sag the small springs are fully compressed.

They do seem small, but they help keep the front tires in constant traction over the small bumps. It's all part of the preload setup/sag.
