What's the point of providing a validation file for fine-tuning?

There is an option to provide a validation file to fine-tune the 3.5 model but fine tune events log only include train loss and accuracy with no validation data whatsoever available anyplace.

So it seems that splitting a validation set from training data serves no useful purpose, only reducing the train set. Or are validation data used internally somehow? If so, for what purpose?
