Force.com project deployment updated profiles!

I deployed some fields and validation rules related to a particular object onto clients production through Eclipse. This deployment updated all the profiles with my name? Is this a default action or is this a bug or how is this possible? Because, when I deploy an object, how come all the profiles are updated with my name? Any help is appreciated.
Just to confirm, are you asking why your name was in the "Last Modified By" field of all the profiles?
Yes, exactly.

When you deploy a new object or field the Profiles in that Org need to state the CRUD (object) permissions or Field Level Security for those profiles. Hence why the profiles would also be modified. Spring 10 saw a change in the default behaviour for new objects in not being automatically granted access.
