Just a guess - I haven't looked at the source code to be sure.

At the point where the page was generated, Tomcat doesn't know that the
client supports cookies since at that point the client hasn't sent a
request with a JSESSIONID cookie so any urls generated will have the
session ID appended.

Once a cookie is received, Tomcat knows there is no need to include the
session ID in the URL.
