Just bought some rings and one of the bases has a screw running right through the middle of it, screws downward...what is this for?

You might want to post a picture of the base.

Yeah...or maybe just a link to the product. That would help a lot.

Wonder what happened to the OP?
Beauty and the Beast, true love or the Stockholm Syndrome?

Not sure if the OP is still interested, but I'd say in all likelihood they are rings for a dovetail and the screw is a recoil stop that would engage in a recess in the top of the action.
As mentioned above, providing a picture would yield a more definitive answer.
