I've wondered this, since the ore spots were randomised. Back when they were fixed, it made sense for people to recall to specific spots. Right after the randomisation, it made a little sense, since people would be set in their ways, But now... I can't see a logical reason for it. If you're doing it without scripting, then it strikes me that the recalling part of it would actually be considerably more of an inconvenience than walking 8 steps. But, I hate cheating accusations, especially without all the facts... So, is there something I'm missing about recall mining?
