 octave keys

My previous oboe was a Rigoutat Expression which I bought from the person who ended up being my teacher. He had glued/attached the two octave keys together, for what purpose I don't know, but it easily played up to super high A.

That one got sold when I had a serious illness, and not that long ago I acquired another Expression, which turned out to be even better than the first one (yay!) but its octave keys are not stuck together.

So....not currently having a teacher, and not being anywhere near that range again yet, what are the two keys for, and why would someone stick them together? Although clearly that worked just fine.
