I would suspect it is the other way around.
The very carefully laid out and mechanically fixed coil is for the
C-field, which should be uniform over the entire microwave field
and orthogonal to beam-path.
The small coil, somewhat haphazardly would in the middle of the
physics package, with a field parallel to the beam-path is much
more likely to be the degaussing coil.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
