I hope you mean that you change the default back to the old
behaviour and the dummy text can be activated using the tracker.

Sure, it doesn't make sense. But it happens if the style changes
halfway during production. In my case I had to change the \in to
\about for the unnumbered sections. Since I couldn't find a regular
expression for that, I had to change it manually and forgot a few.
If a dummy text is printed, it's easy to grep for that.
