[TC/AP] What does "Lock Throttle" control do?

Under menu "Controls" -> tab "Game" -> section "Flight Controls" there is a key "Lock Throttle". What exactly does this key do?

Isn't that the control to match speed with your target (if your ship is fast enough)?

No, match speed with target is a different key.

I think that's if you're flying with a joystick, so you can release the throttle and not have it immediately come to a stop.
