> So what is the point of _PyObject_GC_Calloc ?

It calls calloc(size) instead of malloc(size), calloc() which can be faster than malloc()+memset(), see:
https://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-dev/2014-April/133985.html

_PyObject_GC_Calloc() is used by PyType_GenericAlloc(). If I understand directly, it is the default allocator to allocate Python objects.
