The terms ffmm and ffhh terms are momentum and heat exchange 
coefficients calculated in the atmospheric model.
They are replacing those computed in the original MOM4 so that both 
atmosphere and ocean use the same exchange
coefficients so that heat flux and momentum fluxes are consistent in the 
coupled system.
Although I was not directly involved in this coding, I think that is the 
reason for this replacement.
I hope this helps.
