This is a two part kludge. Part one is adding the "unusual" behavior to pipes. Part two, is making it so that the kernel side of the autofs code will set the flag in the right situations.
The history of operating systems is filled with examples of bad design decisions that weren't caught in time, and thus got stuck in the interface definition.
