Yes, because equivalent to:

\version "2.19.17"
   \tweak transparent ##t c''4

Equivalence doesn’t really answer the question.  Why would a transparent C have 
a stem?
Well, I think it’s rather a question of syntax: by definition, a tweak before a note refers to the note head, else you’d have to explicitly give a grob name, as is custom with \hide:
\hide Stem \hide c''4
Or use \hideNotes c''4 \unHideNotes, which would be the more obvious choice here. And: I’m sure that there are situations in which people would want a note without a note head. Only personally I’d probably not have thought of omitting the grob name to go with \hide… :-)

Yours, Simon
