The reason is that many special emacs buffers have names enclosed in
asterisks, e.g., *Group*, *Messages*, and *unsent mail*.  So not
removing the asterisks certainly makes sense when discussing emacs
related stuff.

If you wanted to, you could use `gnus-parameters' to set
`gnus-emphasis-alist' in a way that removes the asterisks in non-emacs
related groups.
