These little guys may look pointless, but unfortunately, they are more necessary than most people give them credit for. Many laptop manufacturers resort to using thick thermal 'pads' to help transfer heat from secondary chips (GPU, Bridges), and even the CPU from time to time, because the heat sink wasn't thick enough to reach the chip as designed. This poor design causes excess heat buildup and thermal inefficiency. Replacing these pads with these shims and some high quality thermal compound is a great alternative.
Not the best quality control, I don't think they are very accurate, but with 10 in a pack, you just find the one that fits best and use that.
If your laptop uses this type of cooling system and you don't mind doing a little surgery, these babies sell themselves.
