Mainly because in physical modelling you are not adding energy but making the energy of the impulse die away in a controlled manner, which is also what the vibrato arm does.
FM synthesis is constantly adding new energy to the system, a rather different scenario.

Thanks, what makes you say that?

Otherwise you're limited to quantised pitches if you have to only use delay lengths that are an integer number of samples long. So I guess the normal K-S algorithm is dispersive to some extent.

If every cycle looks just like the next cycle then all of the harmonics are integer multiples of the fundamental. If the harmonics are slightly flat or sharp you get little ripples that ride along the waveform from one cycle to the next. The waveform looks like it "evolves" with time.
