Do I understand .pot file correctly?
Depending on the goals of the cracking operation a potfile has different uses, someone might want to disable the potfile or keep separate files. If I was going to work on a list of NTLM hashes for a client I would handle that output differently than if I was testing a new custom rule set. There are rainbow tables that contain lists of precomputed hashes that were fairly common before some of the new more beastly GPU solutions were popular.

Search here for "potfile" to see some of the ways hashcat handles it.
