Wall bump explanation

Two kitchen walls had an odd raise in them, like a vertical speedbump.
Last weekend the plaster came down, this weekend the lathe, revealing the explanation.
In the center of the wall where the speedbump was, the lathe was attached to a vertical piece of wood -- that was not attached to anything. ???

Loose wood that held lathe

There are good solid studs on the wall. Yet the lathe was hanging on this unanchored board.

Go figure. It'll be smooth drywall soon.
