Quite often only the upper 16 bits of the 32 bit position is set, leaving the fractional part unaltered. This will generate a degree of randomness.
One visible example of this is sometimes the ball on the penalty spot will slowly roll away if you leave it long enough! Only the upper part of the velocity is zeroed.
Wow! This is impressive.
