RedHat and Suse don't run baremetal either.
Linux can run on the mainframe, natively, baremetal.

In the article, one comment says "IBM provides IFL which is a chip specifically for running Linux on the mainframe with or without zVM". Then we can see it graphically in
http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/resources/systems_z_os_linux_solution...

That image is from the page http://www-03.ibm.com/systems/z/os/linux/solutions/ifl.html, where you can search for the text "native Linux".
