Is this file simply used when checking modules into the Forge? or does the Console use this file?

To the best of my knowledge, metadata.json is not used by the Puppet console.

It is however used by the module face to determine which version of a module is installed and what it's dependencies are. It's a good idea to add a metadata.json file, even if you're not planning to push the module to the forge.
