Because they use BSD-like licenses, that allows them to redistribute your
code as their own under a proprietary license, so yes, they don't need to
ask for more (well, the Linux kernel is a different case as they use GPL
and keeps everything GPL).

Most of the CLAs I have seen recently (probably copied from the same
original one) are actually not so unfair, as they don't ask for the
ownership of the code, but just a license to use and relicense the code.
The only CLA I know that is different is the one used by the FSF, that is
done to allow them to sue for license enfringements on your code.
