Perforated lip

Why do some old records have a perforated lip on the sleeve with the title and catalog number? Did the consumers do something in the 60s/70s to store and archive records that I have never seen or were these actually meant to be torn off in the shop to allow for easy inventory management and re-ordering?

    The record here is a French one. I have seen it on others but don’t have one at hand ATM.
