It has a function in theory but in practice not
really. It’s supposed to reduce surface suction.
You might notice a difference if you were planing
pine all day. The resin can smear on the plane
sole and make it hard to push and I believe the
corrugations help with that.

My first jack plane was corrugated so I just kind
of like them because that’s what I’m used to.
If you see a good price on one, corrugations
are fine.
