This is usually done to keep the floating floorboard planks in place. The original skirting board is left as normal and a small one is added in front when the flooring is installed. A lot of houses have this from what I’ve seen

what you have is very common.
...and far less expensive!
Thank you! I bit more at ease after your comments just wish they would have told me what they were planning. I dont really like it and now adding furniture there will be a bigger gap between the wall etc..

Well, console yourself with the well know design trick that moving furniture off a wall makes a room look bigger.
Haha will do.

I agree with you, quadding on top of old skirting looks bloody awful.
It definitely is a lot cheaper to do though. Putting new skirting over my floor rather than quadding cost me around $2000 extra, and that's for a new floor. For existing skirting, you probably pay even more for ripping up your old skirting, and then repairing the damage to the wall caused by its removal. The builder should have at least given you the option.
P.S What is that old skirting you've got? Looks really odd, like something turned onto its side...
