Not if japitools compares bytecodes.

An implicit default contructor generates the same bytecode
as an explicit default constructor.



You are right in this but SUN's API shows no accessible constructor for
java.nio.Buffer and java.nio.ByteBuffer. I think SUN doesnt want it to
be extended.


I think that is correct.

It allows for the JIT compilers to generate inline expansions of the methods instead of calling into the runtime libraries. Although you might still be able to do that if you allowed people to sub-class the various Buffer classes it might be more difficult.
