MipMaps and LOTs

Anyone have an idea why there are some MipMaps in the game files?
As example the Tiebomber have a 512x512 res texture and a 32x32 lowres version. Thatīs a big jump isnīt it?
Anyway i didnīt saw any LOT swapping in the game yet.
Could it be that the 32x32res version is only a placeholder for unknown reasons and never shows up in the game?
I thought IF the engine would use LOTs that there will be something like 512x512 than 256x256 ...64x64. But that is something a gameengine could handle on itīs own without having real different size textures.
Just wonder...

It's certainly possible there are textures (or other data) stored in the files that the developers used at one point, and forgot to take out.

You could find out if a particular texture is being used by searching for its name in UltraEdit. If it exists in any TNAM sections, it's being used by a model.
