Split/vent on the lower back of jacket?

I just bought a jacket today (outerwear), and I noticed it has a "split" in the lower part of the back (vent?). I also noticed the split was stitched together at the bottom with very loose stitches forming an X. I assume these stitches are supposed to be taken out, thus allowing the two bottom halves of the jacket to separate when seated?

If you are meant to take out the stitching, why do they put it in there in the first place? (I guess the same could be asked about pockets that are sewn shut).

It's meant to be there so it's rightful owner can remove the stitching. The same goes for the upper and lower pockets. You'll know it wasn't tampered with. So remove that stitching and wear with pride
