Actually this is surely a bug in the Distribution Builder not a 
"feature" of OS X - there is no reason for it to place the data stack 
inside the application bundle instead of in the visible Data folder 
which it also creates; I suppose there could be good reasons to hide 
the data stack from the user, so maybe it should be an OS X option, but 
ordinarily it should work just like on other platforms.
