{pedantic mode on}
Not strictly true, as the D90 is still current (isn't it?) and exhibits the old behaviour.
{pedantic mode off}

This behaviour began with the D300s. Previously, ISO would only be raised by Auto ISO if ambient and flash together could not give a good exposure at the ISO set. Since the D300s the camera seems to seek a good ambient exposure, raising the ISO if necessary, before adding flash. It could be argued that this is a good approach for TTL-BL, when the aim is to balance flash and ambient.
