I guess the paper acts as a washer to prevent the tacks from cutting right through the leather (or vinyl). Makes the tacks easier to see and remove if they have to re-adjust.

Looks like they just grabbed some insulation from a nearby wall to quiet the springs.

Shoe lace, chewing gum, baling wire. I've seen it all.
