Perhaps the capacitor is just there as a filter to shunt any noise (AC from the charging system ) to ground. This is probably the most common use of capacitors for electronics, not energy storage but for clean DC signal. It could be simply there to meet FCC requirements. (so you don't mess with peoples radios and such.)
