I do not think that it necessarily does that. The automatic server startup does

   (server-mode 1)

That is not what the Emacs manual says one should do.  Here's the
relevant excerpt:

       First, the preparations.  Within Emacs, call the function
    `server-start'.  (Your `.emacs' init file can do this automatically if
    you add the expression `(server-start)' to it, see *Note Init File::.)

So it says to add `(server-start)', not `(server-start 1)'.

It looks to me like server-mode was added afterwards to make things more convenient. Maybe the manaul should be updated to reflect that?
