It is an explicit API promise of svn_client_commit6():

 * If @a include_file_externals and/or @a include_dir_externals are #TRUE,
 * also commit all file and/or dir externals (respectively) that are reached
 * by recursion, except for those externals which:
 *     - have a fixed revision, or
 *     - come from a different repository root URL (dir externals).
 * These flags affect only recursion; externals that directly appear in @a
 * targets are always included in the commit.
