What is a Mat with 0 rows used for?

I see in some cases people are initializing a Mat with zero rows. i.e.:

Mat labels(0,1,CV32FC1);

This creates a labels Mat with 0 rows and 1 col. It doesn't look like it can store any data since it would have no 'cells', so to speak. How is this useful? Can this store data?

So, these matrices are not for displaying objects. Instead, they are used in the case when you want to use the Mat as a container object and push data into it.
