tour geometry

I am in the market for a touring bike. As I'm shopping around I noticed the Salsa Marakech. It comes in a drop down and a flatbar. Why is the top tube length longer on the flatbar model vs. the drop down? Is it because with the drop down the rider can push down harder on the pedals, the handle bars being lower causing the rider to be more forward and the riders weight over the pedal?
