The unit test bubble

Look at the following piece of Go code:

func NewQuery(query []rune) *Query {
	q := &Query{
		query:    &[]rune{},
		complete: &[]rune{},
	}
	_ = q.Set(query)
	return q
}
func NewQueryWithString(query string) *Query {
	return NewQuery([]rune(query))
}

It is taken from a GitHub project with over 2000 stars.

Now take a look at these unit tests for the same package:

func TestNewQuery(t *testing.T) {
	var assert = assert.New(t)

	v := []rune(".name")
	q := NewQuery(v)

	assert.Equal(*q.query, []rune(".name"))
	assert.Equal(*q.complete, []rune(""))
}

func TestNewQueryWithString(t *testing.T) {
	var assert = assert.New(t)

	q := NewQueryWithString(".name")

	assert.Equal(*q.query, []rune(".name"))
	assert.Equal(*q.complete, []rune(""))
}

Now be honest: what are these for? Is this part of an attack to eat all GitHub storage and head them to bankruptcy?
