The philosophy behind these warmups is both to avoid injuries and create a flexible and plastic "hand base" from which to operate. Some players mistakenly believe that lots of scale playing somehow magically creates a great technique, whereas this can actually create a locked-up musculature, sports-like injuries and a mechanical style. Effective training is more subtle... stressing on/off periods, playing ideas versus scales, and emphasizing relaxation versus strength as the goal. Ask any player who can shred what they value in their technique more... strength or a relaxed hand and the correct position, and you will learn to value this way.
