No diaphragm in compact cameras ?

I just found out that compact cameras don't have a diaphragm for aperture settings, but that exposure is done by varying the shutterspeed or by neutral density filters.
In fact I can't force my compactcamera to other settings than 4.5 or 5.6.
Who knows more about this subject ?
