yes, the reason is the design of LTSP :)
if a thin client boots, it only starts the kernel, configures the
necessary settings to briong up a graphical interface and brings this
interface up ... then it starts an login manager in exactly this
interface which opens a session on the server after login.

in the console on a thin client you would only be able to log in to the
system that is the bottom layer for the login manager. this system has
by default no enabled accounts at all (not even root) since it is only
used for booting up and managing the hardware.
