Yes - annoying, isn't it ?

From the man page (with SuSE 8.0, which ships with eject 2.0.12)
With this option the drive is given a CD-ROM select speed
command. The speed argument is a number indicating the desired
speed (e.g. 8 for 8X speed), or 0 for maximum data rate. Not
all devices support this command and you can only specify
speeds that the drive is capable of. Every time the media is
changed this option is cleared. This option can be used alone,
or with the -t and -c options.
