Default Anyone use Lager yeast in a Weissbier?

I've been reading about German/Bavarian wheat beers.

One suggestion is to put it on a small amount of lager yeast for a few weeks after the primary. Generally with a small addition of fresh wort as well.

Anyone every tried this?
If so, any benefits to the effort?

Is there any chance they are talking about for bottle conditioning? The added yeast and kraeusen sounds like carbonating in the bottle.

That was my first thought, but it seems to be a step done before bottling or kegging, something of a secondary.
