Screen porch flashing rolls?

I've seen these rolls of what looks like about 16" aluminum flashing in bronze and white in with the screening materials in the big box stores. Does anyone know what this stuff is used for?

Sounds like trim coil that you would bend on a metal brake, often used to make custom flashing.

That's what it looks like, but flashing on a screen porch with aluminum extrusions? Where/what's to flash? It's stocked with the extrusions and in the same colors so I'm assuming there's a connection.

People sometimes cover anything that's bare wood with aluminum trim coil so that it's maintenance free.

Hm. Next time I'm there I gotta see what they call it on the price label. Just curious really.

Found this online with the caption "Insulated Aluminum roof with 2 foot kickplate (flashing at bottom)". Not seeing the purpose unless it's to make the ol' porch look like a mobile home.
