    This code works but I don't understand why.

    Is this dot sourcing a script block or something else?

    Yeah, it's essentially dot-sourcing a script block. Kinda. $_ represents the pipeline object being input to the script. Visually, I find it a poor practice – it isn't appreciably different from using ForEach-Object, and it's not as easy to understand.
