What is the purpose of a hackabit and do the hackamore and bit aspects not defeat each other?

I assume the hackamore would be for more poll and nose pressure whilst the bit would be for a more traditional contact on the horse’s mouth?
I personally don’t understand them. I think if you use a hackamore then you don’t use a bit. Using both is just extra unnecessary force.
