Because apt-get is for the pros and when they do a sudo apt-get dist-upgrade and see a new kernel being installed, they know they have to reboot to activate it... The automatic update is for everyone else out there! ;-)

The software updater had the misfortune of being opened in one of these dead corners! +--------+--------+ | | | *SU* ...
