Perhaps that aspect wasn't entirely intentional (yes I know it's bug#8184).
Compare the definition in Emacs 23.4:

(defun kill-this-buffer ()
  "Kill the current buffer.
When called in the minibuffer, get out of the minibuffer
using `abort-recursive-edit'."
  (interactive)
  (if (menu-bar-non-minibuffer-window-p)
      (kill-buffer (current-buffer))
    (abort-recursive-edit)))
