Anyway I understand that if one night I forget to turn off the tap, the float needle should cut off the supply and nothing should happen, right?
That's what you hope for, but sometimes, overnight or even days later, the float needle stops sealing and the gas starts flowing. So turning off the petcock (if it's no longer the automatic type) is a sort of "belt and suspenders" method of making sure gas doesn't flow while your back is turned.

Glad you're up and running again!
