Little white diffusing domes?

Many of the newer monolights come with frosted diffusing domes.

Do they do anything or just another gimmick?

Inside a softbox with two diffusion panels? Is it noticeable?

If used as a direct hard line with a 7inch pan/dish direct reflector one is going for the hard light and the 'softening' is not noticeable anyways.

My other lights come with clear protective glass domes against touching the bulb, makes sense to me.

Anyone else can confirm that the frostie doesn't really do much? Or anyone notice anything?
