Because a group policy exists in your domain that defines this setting. You can run
gpresult /scope computer
and look for "The machine received security settings from the following GPOs" (or similar) on the machine to find out the name of possible GPOs where this settings is defined.

"If this policy is disabled, then encryption and signing of all secure channel traffic is negotiated with the Domain Controller in which case the level of signing and encryption depends on the version of the Domain Controller and the settings of the following two policies:

    * Domain member: Digitally encrypt secure channel data (when possible)
    * Domain member: Digitally sign secure channel data (when possible)

Default: Enabled."
