Wood chips in my roof eve overhangs??

I just remove a section of plaster ceiling and noticed my eve overhangs where filled with wood chips. It is not a rodent problem, it looks like it was purposely put there. Does anyone know what the purpose of this is?

Carpenters alway leave behind stuff in areas that don't show. If the pile is random, it was them, if neatly piled, likely furry critters.

Many years ago.......... common insulation material:

Clothes taking longer to dry?
Clean the dryer screen in HOT water if using fabric softener sheets.
They leave a residue that impedes air-flow, costing you money.
Clean the ducting in the last six months? 17,000 dryer fires annually!
