Because there is 12 volt control voltage going to the thermostat.

more info needed does it trip a circut breaker or just not operate when you shut down the 12v power if the later I would suspect 12v is necessary to run the unit ( why do You shut the 12v)

If you shut off your 12V's you are also shutting off all control boards fridge, water heater, AC's and thermostat.
