The silicone sock is a very good insulator and will keep the nozzle hot. This helps to keep the plastic at the same hot temperature up to the point where it leaves the nozzle. Using the sock can help reduce the need for a part cooling fan and reduces the risk of a part cooling fan affecting the nozzle temperature.
The socks can be used up to temperatures of 300 Celsius. Beyond this temperature the socks can still be used but will degrade faster.
