I'm pretty sure that is due to ubuntu's implementation,
not necessarily due to grub2 itself, but having had to
fool with ubuntu systems at work, I can say it is a
pain to have to remember to edit completely different
files and run extra silly tools. (The first thing I
wanted to do on an ubuntu virtual machine was the
equivalent of setting runlevel to 3 instead of 5. That
first required a snipe hunt through the undocumented
"upstart" nonsense to discover that the only way to
do it is to add the "text" kernel boot option, which
then led to a new snipe hunt through the undocumented
grub2 implementation on ubuntu. It took years and
cost thousands of lives, but I eventually got my
ubuntu virtual machine to boot without all the gdm
nonsense :-).
