That makes perfect sense. A slacker bike with more trail will have a longer front Centre and wheelbase(all else being equal). So you don’t need extra reach to create a long wheeelbase for stability. The same goes for over the bars, the front wheel is already further out in front, so OTB is less likely, even with a shorter reach. Finally, the longer front center reduces weight on the front wheel, compared to a bike with the same rear center and reach, but steeper head angle.
