Steering damper? I seem to remember they were a brief fad for downhillers a few years back

Nope, if it were a damper, there'd be some form of mount on one of the fork legs or one of the yokes.
I think it's an external reservoir for the forks, to minimize pressure variation as the fork itself heats up.
