Because all compilers spit out errors that start at column 1 and not
0, and this means that what I see in the mode line will match the
error output of the compilers I use (including those following GNU
coding standards, which see.)

It is not the default, it is a new knob you can turn. If you don't
like the feature, then don't set the variable controlling it.
