Why would encrypting data result in a call to a Domain Controller

This KB article mentions an issue where signing or encrypting information may result in a network IO call to a Domain Controller.

Apparently the RSACryptoServiceProvider's SignData and VerifyData looks up the OID in AD, but the purpose of this call eludes me.

What could be the possible security benefit of this? I'd like to learn more about it.
