Any clue on what is that helping for, as the chip also has a 1.25V reference.
The circuit possibly intends a better load regulation than achievable with a single LM317. It's however not obvious, that the feedback loop is stable at all.

generally an extra feed back by using a configurable reference like TL431 is added to achieve a lower output voltage by introducing a different feedback than generally done by feeding the output directly through a voltage divider(or to cheat the eror amplifier of the LDO:wink:)......here the purpose should be a better load regulation.....
