Handy as Kerny says for holding when either on board moving about or holding off when on a jetty/pontoon.
As for not standing on tubes, why not? They're not made of paper!
Well if your spent own good money on a rib and new tubes I don't think you would want any num nuts standing all over it with muddy boots and pushing off from your engines with a boat hook
But the again if it's someone else's rib who cares
And as for the cleats I've seen one torn off so you takes your chance
