It has to do with the timing of the airbag in an accident. If your vertically challenged (short) you will have the seat forward towards the steering wheel airbag, which is not the best place to be when an airbag goes off so I believe the ECU then knows the seat has been adjusted to the forward position and ignites the airbag sooner than normal.
