So what is the origin of this gesture, which in any other walk of life is at least awkward, and possibly grounds for legal action?

We don’t see lawyers, after a stunningly good defense, walk back to their seat and get a slap on the butt from their client.  Nor do you see doctor’s slapping each other on the butt after a successful operation.
