The sterile koi keepers do its to help keep parasites in check but bacteria, and plants that ponds need don't do well with salt

Salt has been overused so much in the past that parasites have actually developed an immunity to it. It is no longer recommended for treating parasites because it does no good.

Salt does have a purpose, though. It's useful when there are nitrite readings with the water. Salt will protect the fish from taking up the nitrite and causing brown blood disease. But as a general use, it's no longer recommended, even by those koi keepers.

As poconojo said, that's a very outdated custom.
