svn status and svn:externals

Appologies if this is an RTFM question (I have, but can't spot the answer)...

What is the reason for the status command showing 'X' for (external)
subdirectories but showing normal when the command is run directly on
that subdir?

To clarify, assume that ./lib/thirdParty is external (in my case diff
project in same repos)

'svn status ./lib' returns:

    X lib/thirdparty

whereas 'svn status ./lib/thirdparty' returns nothing?

Using the API (javahl in my case), the API equiv of the second command
returns SVNStatusKind.NORMAL when I was naively expecting

Is the only way to determine whether or not a directory path is
external to run a status command on its parent directory?
