Cisco 350AP installation keys


I have been using Cisco Wireless products recently. I was wondering if some one knew what is the use of installation keys. I know we can transfer these keys to a file server normally would have an extension of .ap and .var to a central repository(like a desktop computer or a file server). This could be done by hitting ctrl-w and iniitiating an upload. The transfer protocol would be XModem. Why I am asking this question is some one documented this in my organization and we need this to reset to factory defaults. But to reset to factory defaults we can issue a command resetall with 2 minutes of the booting of the access point and without the help of these keys. I appreciate if some one can throw light on this subject matter. Thanks.
