I'm sure in a perfect world they wouldn't but for example most turbo cars burn more oil than your regular naturally aspirated engine counterparts. I know for a fact that even brand new VW GTIs are notorious for burning oil & then obviously the older any engine gets its likely to burn more oil.

I don't think it should be a cause for concern unless you're refilling your reservoir several times between oil changes. I think with any of my cars I only needed to add oil to them twice between oil changes and that was usually after winter driving, which can also increase oil consumption as the engine runs colder longer.
