The purpose is two fold.
First off, they are used as an "s-link" ...if you used wire to make the
connection you would also need a wire-placing machine along with your smt
placing machine - very expensive.
Secondly, if a 0ohm resistor is used in a power circuit and there is a
short, it will blow up almost instantaneously - very useful ...a cheap fuse :)
