Thank you, this is really very "luaistic"... :).

So the second function after return is executed first... .

I am just trying to improve my Lua skills with (which I
can really recommend for this purpose, also to compare different
problem solve approachs in different languages, codewars supports ca.
30-50 languages).

What this construction does is that it first unpacks the removed elements, pushing them on the stack; this is then passed as an argument to a function to avoid having to store them in a table or the like. The function then calls table.move and returns the removed elements afterwards. In the end this is a clever trick to "store" a vararg on the stack.
