S&J calls that their “universal pattern” , the idea being that you get the benefit of a crosscut and rip pattern. The unset tooth acts like a raker tooth.
You sometimes see that with large toothed saws, but I’m not sure there is any real advantage With smaller teeth.
It does save them from having to set 1/3 the teeth.
