There are as many poor(ly trained) interviewers out there as there are poor(ly trained) interviewees. In my experience, a lot of interviewers don't know why they are asking certain questions. They ask them — more or less as you say — just because they think that that's what interviewers are supposed to ask.

That doesn't mean in that in the hands of a skilled interviewer the questions themselves have no value. In the hands of a good interviewer, almost any question can elicit a useful response.
