Not necessarily, no. I'm sure with the bigger studios it's totally a marketing ploy, just like when they double dip (multiple releases of a single title over a period of years, each new DVD "better" than the last).
But independent flicks or smaller flicks are given less money for DVD printing and distributing, so fewer copies are made, making those smaller releases quite literally limited editions. They just don't have the dough to print out millions of copies like the big dog studios can.
