On a two pole, single phase 240V manual starter, i.e. 2510FG2, why is there only one leg that has a thermal unit?

NEC only requires a thermal unit on one leg for single phase. On a two pole single phase device current goes out on one leg and comes back on the other leg, hence you only need one thermal unit.
