I've never soaked nuts before eating. Is this part of a recipe? No reason to soak them for just eating

Actually, I have a nifty recipe for Macadamia Nut Mayonnaise that involves soaking nuts. I've heard of also soaking nuts to make nut milk, but that's about it.

Soaking nuts overnight in water makes them easier to digest. I have recipe where you soak whole almonds in water overnight. The next day you squeeze them out of their skins and then roast them with olive oil and fresh rosemary. You wouldn't believe how delicious they are!
