It is because this board uses the lptmr hardware timer for xtimer, while the other boards use the PIT hardware timer for xtimer. the LPTMR driver implementation uses RTT for a time base reference. I would like to improve the lptmr driver, but limitations in the hardware in combination with requirements from the xtimer implementation makes it difficult to make a good implementation without a separate time reference right now.
If you like I can change the default config to use PIT like the other kinetis boards
