There is the section from the repair manual quoted on the first page of the thread that talks about it.

It is mentioned specifically on pages 2-11 (that is what is on the first page of the thread), 2-15 and 9-3 of the 990 engine manual, every time that it needs to be done when resetting the ECU or installing a new EFI Map.

Also from the way I read the manual it is very possible that this is only to do with calibrating the idle. Page 9-11 talks about this a fix for rough idling.

If needed I can post the words from the relevant bits.
