Because it's a mistake? ;-)

Actually, where I got the call from had stated that in order to accesss
/sbin you needed to be logged in with superuser access. If the fact is that
it works regardless of login state, I'm happy to remove that requirement.

BTW: I note you are calling 'ifconfig en0' instead of '/sbin/ifconfig en0';
are you getting the same result? If so, perhaps the fact that '/sbin' is not
needed affects the login status...
