I wouldn't go as far as stating that the freeze breaks are deliberate.

...and this is why. Many people work in their spare time, and in the weeks
before a release they feel more obliged to fix bugs, which, inherently,
sometimes involves changing UI strings.

Personally, I think we're doing quite well for this cycle, with most freeze
breaks happening early in the cycle. It would be interesting to see how many
strings have been changed after the string freeze came into effect, and how
this situation was for earlier releases. Numbers, anyone?
