It’s probably some bit of voodoo learned in a situation where Ctrl-D alone didn’t do what the OP wanted. Ctrl-A goes to the beginning of the line in Bash’s default input mode, so it’s a no-op any time a subsequent Ctrl-D would exit the shell.
If there is input text at the shell prompt, Ctrl-A will go to the beginning of it, but Ctrl-D in that case does a backwards delete, like DEL on an IBM PC keyboard. So again, there is no case I can think of where Ctrl-A + Ctrl-D is a better way to exit the shell than just Ctrl-D.
