How does this work?

This script uses the Palo Alto Networks API to retrieve the current hardware model (the equivalent of running "show system info" in CLI) and based on the model and the Palo Alto Networks provided information at https://www.paloaltonetworks.com/services/support/end-of-life-announcements/hardware-end-of-life-dates the correct end of support date is used.
