Strange Photoshop marquee selection behaviour(?)

I just noticed something very strange: If I select a marquee anywhere on the image then I can contract or expand it by as many pixels as I want through the Select/Modify menu.

But if I select the whole of the image then the 'Contract' option is not available. I can understand the 'Expand' option not being available but why not the 'Contract' ?
