They look nice, maybe?

If you do any wiring on your car you will notice that there is a lot of resistance in the ground system as it come from the factory.
Chances are you may never have a problem, but, the factory doesn't clean any paint,grease,dirt, or crud from any of the grounds. For instance, your radio is grounded to a metal bar,that is connected to a painted surface,that is connected to the firewall that is sandwiched with a sound deadening layer ( asphalt) between layers of galvanized steel, then through another layer of paint to another painted piece to the ground cable ( a very small one by the way,something like a 10 awg) then to the battery.

If any of these connections are bad, no ground,no radio.

They are for looks, and assurance of a good if not close to perfect ground.
