      Hi Penrhyn.
      Yes I have seen these. In a nut shell they break the ring line connection from the master (just the same as removeing the connection from 3 on the master faceplate).
      They have come about because BT has realised that the ring line causes problems, and with the impending introduction of ADSL2+ for BT Broadband, and easy way for solving this problem for techophobic users had to be found.
      As always, the best connection is to be had by using a filter faceplate, but it does restrict the user to one outlet for ADSL, and this is not acceptable for many users.

      I get it now, it fits between the test socket and the faceplate and breaks the pin 3, ring wire connection.

      Sounds more impressive than it is!
