this is described in section of the JCR spec:

A type constraint specifies the common primary node type of the returned 
nodes, plus, possibly, additional mixin types that they also must have. 
Type constraints are inheritance-sensitive in that specifying a 
constraint of node type X will include all nodes explicitly declared to 
be type X, as well as all nodes of subtypes of X.
