Is it actually used when playing or just as an embouchure/aperture exercise?

It’s absolutely a valid technique to be used as often as possible as long as the sound of the articulation is appropriate for the style of music being played. I am sitting here running some tunes for a gig I am doing with an Australian band called The Cat Empire and have been taking particular note of where and when I use it; it is often!!!
