This DTO template generates only the "collection" part of 1:N associations. For M:N associations, only one of the association ends is generated, which is a collection as well. If the second end was generated in parallel, this would easily lead to errors because of cyclic references during serialization of the object graph. And this is actually the main reason for generating the code this way.
Hope that helps.
