The self Adjuster cable does just that. Self Adjusts.
Your supposed to use your parking brake every once and a while, and it pulls the self adjusting cable and pushes your shoes out to the drum, so you don't have to push the pedal as far to stop.
Mine currently dosen't have a self adjusting cable on either side. (i got angry one day doing brakes, and cut the Ebrake cable for both sides) the only thing you need to do is every 2 or 3 months depending on how you drive, just adjust the self adjusting screw out a bit more.
