php 7 – "HTTP_X_REQUESTED_WITH" => "XMLHttpRequest" – out of nowhere

I spent many time for this case, but i can’t understand how it arises.
So. I have legacy php application.
Now it is working on the following environment:

PHP 5.6.10-1+deb.sury.org~trusty+1 (cli) 
Zend Engine v2.6.0 with Zend OPcache v7.0.6-dev

nginx/1.4.6

For test i setup php-7

PHP 7.0.0RC3 (cli) 
Zend Engine v3.0.0-dev, with Zend OPcache v7.0.6-dev

nginx/1.4.6

So, case.
I load page first time:
http://storage3.static.itmages.com/i/15/0929/h_1443537572_8408994_b7e2156e5f.png

After page loaded, executed several ajax requests.

After reload page, in the $_SERVER variable we have HTTP_X_REQUESTED_WITH
http://storage3.static.itmages.com/i/15/0929/h_1443538095_6543758_9b4a478a13.png

but as you can see in the request headers we havn’t this header.
Below you can see headers from nginx (access log)

Ajax request

10.0.2.2 - - [29/Sep/2015:15:00:44 +0300] "GET /stat/notifications-count HTTP/1.1" 200 30341 "http://vm-hub.dev:8888/client" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/45.0.2454.101 Safari/537.36" "-" "no-store, no-cache, must-revalidate" "XMLHttpRequest"

and normal request

10.0.2.2 - - [29/Sep/2015:15:14:32 +0300] "GET /client HTTP/1.1" 200 95434 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/45.0.2454.101 Safari/537.36" "-" "no-store, no-cache, must-revalidate" "-"
