There is a comment in ast_channel_clear_softhangup() that says why.
There is another comment in __ast_read() where the AST_CONTROL_END_OF_Q
control frame is put in the read queue that gives even more information.

Basically, when ast_read() sees a hangup, there may be pending frames
in the read queue so it puts a control frame in the read queue to know
when all pending frames have been read and to block any more frames
from being put on the read queue.  ast_read() will then return a NULL
to indicate a hangup.

Please create a JIRA issue[1] for the app_softhangup application bug.
