The rice hulls simply add to the effect of the hulls of the other grains in enabling the grist not to pack so tightly that the flow of the wort is obstructed, i.e., it increases the amount of small openings or "channels" in your mash through which the wort can reach the exit (false bottom, braid, manifold, etc.)
