It doesn't. But it won't commit your selected files from externals either.

The check-for-modifications dialog shows you the modifications of your
externals projects so you can see that there are modifications there.
The externals 'belong' to your project, so that dialog will show you
those too.

The commit dialog doesn't show you those (at least if you use a nightly
build) because you can't commit them together with your other changes.
There's one exception: if the externals are in the same repository, the
commit dialog will show you those because a commit can succeed (but only
if the externals are not in an unversioned subfolder - that bug has been
fixed on trunk: those externals won't show up in the commit dialog anymore).
