Apparently, this is the "New Method" as detailed in the Debian Reference Manual: https://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/debian-reference/ch07.en.html#_customizing_the_x_session_new_method
Which makes X sessions include the same profile as standard login shells.Bash's initialization is a bit more complex than that. It will look for three different files (.bash_profile or .bash_login or .profile), in that order, and uses the first one it finds. I'd imagine zsh does something similar, though I don't use zsh. For pure POSIX sh or ksh, you would be correct.
