That's odd. It is on my MacBook Pro (10.5.1), Mac Mini (10.5.1) and
PowerMac G4 (10.4.11).
Aha! Its appearance depends on the presence of a multi-button mouse (at
least, it does under Leopard).
If I launch System Preferences while my Logitech cordless mouse is
plugged into my MacBook Pro, I get Expose and Dashboard options for
setting mouse actions.
If I launch System Preferences without a mouse plugged in, those menus
don't appear. (If I've already enabled that feature then there is no
user interface to disable it.)
There will be a command line method of setting this preference via
'defaults' but nothing leapt out at me from a quick search.

It will have enabled the appropraite setting in the preference files,
but you don't have the user interface to configure it.
