I don't why, but assume it's to prevent lumps and bumps, but I bang my cake pans on the counter and make sure the center is lower that the edges. That's how my mother-in-law insisted she baked her cakes for her son so I've followed the rules.
I agree that you should check your oven temp with another thermometer.

Our family has always banged it on the counter first to release all air bubble that may cause tunnels.
