Just to clarify: if you have multiple ports on a module with the same net connected to them, the netlist has to insert assign statements to be able to netlist the correct functionality. However, if you use this command, it inserts buffers so that they are actually different nets, but again with the same functionality. This is required because some backend tools do not understand assign statements.
