Where is ESXi Multi Monitors / Number of Displays option used?

When I edit the Video Card settings for a VM in ESXi I can see there is an option to specify "Number of Displays". However I can't see what this actually does? What is the purpose of this option and how should it be used?

I've tried the following clients:

Fusion 8.5

Workstation 12.5


ESXi Web Client

Horizon View 7

Remote Desktop

And they all seem to do their own thing in terms of configuring the number of displays on the host and do not seem to honour this setting. Is that correct - and if so what is the purpose of this option??
