It reads an attached stored data-value from the document.body that has the name "theme".

Take a look in the source for an attribute data-theme="value" in the body tag.

The Variable "theme" is being assigned a data attribute for theme,  the  $.data()  stores a reference to a variable, which could even be a global variable in a DOM element for the HTML page.
