"Relative" in this context refers to the concept of a "relative path" as used in rfc1808, not to a relationship with a Zope object. It is meant for use in situations such as redirection to a secure page from an insecure one (eg. 'https://example.com' + target.absolute_url(1)) where you would otherwise have to generate the complete URL and then break it apart.
So, what do we want "relative" to mean for absolute_url?

When you accept that "absolute_url(1)" should come near to the notion of server relative absolute URL, then it *must* return an URL with respect to the currently active site root. Otherwise, the browser using this URL will interpret it wrongly. It may still work due to acquisition, but this is more by accident.
