It's not a Slackware feature. Even in Ubuntu, once you set a root password (instead of relying on thier exclusive use of 'sudo'), you will be prompted for the admin pass during a single mode boot. If it remains unset it will not be asked and the user is dropped into a shell prompt with root privileges.
