In this case it's because it links against libpq:

yvaine# ldd /usr/pkg/lib/
        -lpthread.0 => /usr/lib/

yvaine# ldd /usr/pkg/libexec/postfix/smtp   
        -lpq.5 => /usr/pkg/lib/
        -lpthread.0 => /usr/lib/

In the MySQL case (libmysqlclient) libpthread is really required because 
the MySQL client is thread safe and uses pthread primitives for that.  I 
don't know if that's the case in PostgreSQL as well off hand.
