Just a question

I see in many videos and blogs and recipes, where I keep seeing people adding the salt to the dough almost at the end of the mix.  I just wondering what does it do? what difference does it make to add salt to the dough once all the others ingredients are all mixed?

I normally mix the salt, together with the yeast and sugar in the flour.  Anyway, if anybody knows, I do like to know why and if it is something that started to be practice lately.

Anyway, thank you in advance to all the comments.
