They have latex glazing compound, for which they rec. latex based primer. Old glazing method - one, anyway - was to paint on linseed oil prior to glazing. Old glazing compound was oily, so would probably leave oil residue in wood and keep latex primer from sticking. Good website, here:

Just a guess but probably to keep the oil in the glazing compound (they are generally linseed oil and a filler like whiting) from being sucked out which would make the glazing compound dry and crumbly .
