If you look in jifty/lib/Jifty/Action/Record.pm, line 179:

 # build up a validator sub if the column implements validation
 # and we're not overriding it at the action level
 if ( $column->validator and not $self->can("validate_$field")) {
   $info->{ajax_validates} = 1;

If you don't specify any validator then it autogenerates one and
automatically enables ajax_validates.  The reason you aren't seeing it
is because you have manually created your own validation routine, when
you do that you have to manually enable ajax_validates.
