Cork use during a wax job

From my younger race days I have a bunch of cork that I used to use. I used cork after I did a scrap, but never did any structuring. This was in the days before youtube and forums and I was young so just kind of bought stuff and winged it as far as application, so probably wasn't doing myself any real favors in my wax job from a performance stand point.

Is the cork used in replace of the scotchbright phase? Or is it simply used in the application of a cold wax to try to get a little better penetration into the base? More a curiosity thing as I am just getting back into things and when I looked at my old waxing area noticed the cork.
