That is to protect all the other parts from getting any polishing compound on them. also to protect the plastic from getting wax on it.
Sometimes this step gets overlooked but very important.

Ö.accidentally bumping against some trim, emblems, decals, etc. with a polisher/product can alter and/or damage the finish. In some cases (personally) I donít bother but it depends on the design/location of the trim relative to where my buffer will be on the panel(s) I will be correcting. When it doubt though, it is better to tape off any bits adjacent to areas you will be polishing just to be sure. Ö.better to be safe than sorry.

Much better desciption of why the tape. Also you can damage the pad. And for $13 per pad, you dont want to risk it.
