Well, sure, template links to home will be on the home page. But from Google's point of view, their 'random surfer' should be disappointed to click a link not marked 'home' on the home page and not go anywhere. I would be, unless it was an anchor point.
That's why I was interested to know if it's the presence of the text in a link that is the factor, or just the fact that the phrase is on the page at all.
