The behavior would be the same for objects which are not from class data.frame and circular (in the last case the standard deviation is define as in Mardia (1972)

sqrt(-2 * ln(r))

where r is the mean resultant length of the data, see sd.circular for more details). The method for data.frame will apply the sd function to each columns.
