Because it is a part of glibc?

It is needed to "set the owner, group and access permission of the slave 
pseudo terminal corresponding to the master pseudo terminal passed on file 
descriptor `3'." It is "the helper program for the `grantpt' function" and 
"is not intended to be run directly from the command line". There. Shameless 
man page copy-pasting.
