It's just semantics. Geneticists call themselves lazy for the same reason. The idea is to work smarter rather than harder, and avoiding hard work is the essence of laziness.

There's probably a dialect issue here as well, because I know "lazy" has historically had much worse connotations than it does today. (At least in my region and age group, in yours it may have retained those implications.)
