The verb to sit "κάθομαι" why does it change from passive to active voice in different tenses?

The verb "κάθομαι" is irregular,  that's why in some tenses it changes from passive to active form. Its meaning, though, remains the same.

Ενεστώτας (Present):  κάθομαι -> passive

Παρατατικός (Past Cont.): καθόμουν -> passive

Μέλλοντας Απλός (Simple Future): θα καθίσω -> active

Μελλοντας Διαρκείας (Future Cont.): Θα κάθομαι -> passive

Αόριστος (Simple Past): κάθισα -> active

Παρακείμενος (Present Perfect):  έχω καθίσει -> active

Υπερσυντέλικος (Past Perfect): είχα καθίσει -> active
