For a more accurate picture of the Edgar brothers take on the Girdle Stones, see John and Morton Edgar 'The Great Pyramid Passages and Chambers. Vol. 1: Letter XVII. The First Ascending Passage. The "Girdles" and Symmetric Masonry. Pages 281-285' 1923.
As for M&R, they were more concerned with the measurements of the AP, and drew heavily on Petrie 1883.

I don't understand this.

As I see it generally, if an object serves no practical purpose then it can be seen as being symbolic.
The Girdle Stones have no practical purpose, and so I see them as symbolic.
As for what the symbolism of the Girdle Stones is is something we shall probably never know.

We can't all be right, but we all could be wrong.
