I thought these small engines were only equipped with low oil level kill switches ?

If it's that same kind of Low Oil Level Switch, it's just another kill switch shorting out the Magneto when the crankcase Oil Level falls too low.

Good for people who don't ever check their oil . . . . and never change it, I guess.

I would look for a schematic under the machine, not the engine. Whether pressure or level, it's just a switch, and I can't come up with a good example right now, but for instance there may be some applications in which the manufacturer of the piece of equipment wants that switch to shut the engine off, and other applications in which the manufacturer wants the switch to alert the operator via a visible or audible signal but allow the engine to remain running.
