It is on tmpfs.
Can anybody tell me what is its purpose (as many other distros don't
have it) and when it gets mounted?

If I'm informed correctly it is mounted by calling /sbin/lrm-manager. AFAIK it is for non-free kernel modules or something like this. I never used Ubuntu so I can't tell you more, but maybe it helps you a bit...
