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.
