They are used to minimise radio frequency interference
picked up by the cable.
If all your leads are close together as in a submarine
pressure hull, they may be of use.
Modern gear is a bit rfi proof. Even twisted servo leads
help.
If you search on here for ferrite rings you can read all
the different opinions on the subject.
