Because if you take a screen capture using the built-in screen capture utilities of those programs, they take the grab before it's rendered.
It's not the program that scales, it's the renderer (ie the video card/drivers/windows).
Do a Print Screen (if you're not using Overlay) and you'll get a screenshot of the upconverted picture.
FWIW, if PCs didn't upscale, you'd have to watch all your movies in a little box in the middle of your screen.
