I think it's just a 'ranking' system which was introduced long ago (before I joined) by the person who ran/started the site. Moderators have some extra privileges though. You'll notice the Stack Exchange franchise has taken this 'ranking' business to a new level by introducing an assortment of 'badges' and 'reputation points'. It has it's uses I guess.

I believe it's by appointment although, aside from trying to be generally helpful, don't know of any specific roles that Math Team members are expected to fulfill.
