Photoshop Why doesn't "Add Mask by Default" work for the first 3 items in the adjustment layer menu?

As of Photoshop CS4 and above (also CS6 Beta), when the option "Add Mask by Default" is Unchecked in the Adjustment Panel menu, the three first adjustments in the adjustment drop down menu from the Layers Panel, "Solid Color...", "Gradient..." and "Pattern..." wont recognise that option. This is true for all windows operating systems, XP, Vista, 7 and 8 (Consumer Previrew), Not sure for Mac.

Those aren't adjustments, those are content generator layers, which have their own preference for including a mask or not.
