Any jack application that calls jack_client_open and does not pass JackNoStartServer will have this behavior.  You probably just haven't noticed this, or are using only old clients that are using the (now deprecated) jack_client_new.  (See http://jackaudio.org/files/docs/html/group__ClientFunctions.html#gabbd2041bca191943b6ef29a991a131c5 for the api docs on jack_client_open).

In my experience, most people using jack these days are aware that most clients will autostart the server if they haven't started it, and it does not confuse them.
