It depends upon the scenario..
If you want to create your SELECT statements dynamically based on several parameters, then you can store the base SELECT query in the table and then add WHERE clauses and ORDER BY clauses dynamically..

The C# devs who I work with joked about the table.....but I can't see anything really bad about it.

Yes, if there is no necessity to dynamically form queries, then there is no need for that table.
But if you need to dynamically form queries which should be much customizable, then you can have a table like that..
