This is the Token extensions(or Token 22) program address, solscan address.

You need to specify it, if you are working with a token that will need token extensions features, for example, adding metadata using the metadata pointer or add a transfer fee ...e.t.c.

If you omit it, the CLI will fallback to using the original Token Program - TokenkegQfeZyiNwAJbNbGKPFXCWuBvf9Ss623VQ5DA

For the guide you are using, omitting it will likely result in an error as it uses the metadata pointer.
