Can anyone think of a practical reason for this valve and the need to be able to shut off the water flow into the pump at this point?
I inadvertently shut it off thinking it was my black country fill valve as it isn't really visible from the access panel.
I agree with Marcm, that is where my (2018 26.5 RLDS Eagle HT) winterizing hose connects to a valve.
My guess would be, the previous owner broke the original valve and replaced it from a hardware store.
