here's a hinge pocket where it's flanged up top but an open butt weld everywhere else. If you look close the edges are beveled where it lays over the flange. Flanging helps stuff stay straight and adds strength.

Here's another one. If I did this today I would probably open butt weld it but I'm sure the flange helped keep everything lined up nice.
