The classic example is a street. Streets are one of those objects in OSM
which are defined by a unique name on several ways. So if a wikidata item
is about a street, all ways get the same part:wikidata=*

Art or memorial installations like Stolperstein[1], which are distributed,
but have one wikidata item. It's hard to imagine every Stolperstein will
get its own article. And a relation with all these nodes makes no sense.

And then it could be used when the mapper isn't sure how to map a wikidata
item, so she just tags all the parts with part:wikdiata=*. Then someone
more experienced shows up, and creates a valid relation, and sums up all
those parts into one wikidata=* (and deletes the part:wikidata=* tags).
