Starter relay JD6068

I recently replaced the starter relay on my John Deere 6068 engine. The newly installed starter relay was a JD OEM version and was significantly smaller than the old one removed. Also the old relay had what appeared to be a resistor (see photo) across the control switch lugs. I installed the new starter relay without the resistor and the engine started right up.

Anyone know what the purpose of the resistor across the control lugs is for?
