Most probably, given the size of your default font, the last line of
the window is not fully visible, and so Emacs recenters point to make
its line visible.  With scroll-conservatively it intentionally avoids
doing that because that's what scroll-conservatively is all about.
But that option sometimes causes expensive calculations during
redisplay, and many people don't like the effect even when it causes
no slow-down, so it is not the default.
