06 Sabercat reverse chain tensioner

What function does the winding spring have in the tensioner? I am talking about the part in the mushroom part of the automatic tensioner. I took it apart for maintenance, and am wondering if I need to wind it somehow when I put it back together? Any help is appreciated!

No trick question. Just looks strange, and I am trying to figure out how the spring turns the adjuster screw. I set tension manually on it (took cover off). I am assuming the spring will keep it consistent.

Thanks for the help
