I do not do this, but there may be a reason. This is when you are searching and use search procedures, for example you are searching for a period at the end of a sentence.
A period may also be in numbers (without spaces).
If you have a space after each period in a sentence it is easier to exclude numbers from search.
This is just an example.
I found a similar discussion on wether to set one or two spaces after a sentence. A friend gave me the hint that this also improves searches and automatic process flows.

When it happens, it's clearly deliberate: One space at the end of each paragraph and list item. I've seen it in files created in Word, Frame, XMetaL, you name it, so it's the writer, not the tool.
