Why is everything a Mosaic Layer?

Below are some specs I gathered from 10 different layers in my MXD.

I have polygon layers, polyline layers, raster layers, etc. yet EVERY SINGLE ONE of them answers TRUE to the following

If TypeOf ILayer is MosaicLayer = True Then...

Why is this? That cannot possibly be correct.
