ArcCatalog Calling PostGIS Function in an ESRI Geodatabase

Why is ArcCatalog calling a PostGIS function in an ESRI Geodatabase? Our PostgreSQL log is covered with the following error -

2013-11-01 19:38:26 PDT ERROR function public.postgis_lib_version() does not exist at character 8
2013-11-01 19:38:26 PDT HINT No function matches the given name and argument types. You might need to add explicit type casts.

Do I have to enable the PostGIS extension for an ESRI Geodatabase? If so, why?

I am running ArcGIS 10.2. Geodatabase is 10.2 too.
