First, the humming is consistent with the title of recording. Second, it is the refrain of the song; hence, it is repeated emphatically a various points the recording. Finally, “Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm” is a song about adverse situations and suffering; the humming then can be seen as a means to transmits the overall mood of the song.
