trick question about sudo

I have one question about sudo.

While looking for uid/gid override for samba mounts I found this solution:
sudo echo 0 > /proc/fs/cifs/LinuxExtensionsEnabled

But this obviously doesn't work on Fedora but this works:
sudo sh -c 'echo 0 > /proc/fs/cifs/LinuxExtensionsEnabled'

But the trick question is in which setups and which circumstances can
the first sudo work?
