Mac OS X does this with any resource fork and some other metadata when
the target filesystem is seen on its end as "flat" (Which right now is
just a fancy way of saying "Not HFS+" - so NFS, SMB, etc...).

It's an unfortunate "lowest common denominator" compromise, since in
some cases (i.e. WebDAV) there's actually a place for that kind of
metadata and information that would be -just fine- but it's not used.
