To simply put it, that is how the start method in the Thread class has been implemented.
You may implement your class to do anything that you like, but that doesn't mean that an instance of your class cannot be considered to be a regular object in java.
For example say that you have written a class which has a method that writes a record to a DB when that method is invoked. Would you not consider an instance of your class to be like any other object in Java?
