Front Shock Madness!

Taking the shock(s) off the front of my 2001 320 for replacement. the previous owner did something I'm not familiar with (see picture). Taking the top nut off the shock top the shock shaft popped into the hole. Once removed and compared to the replacement shock the new one is longer.

Was this an ill-informed effort to lower the front end? That orange thing says "pur" and "33 e".

Sheer madness.
