A battery has an internal resistance, and in this case that resistance was enough to limit the current to a "safe" value. But that was just luck. …

For most uses of a bench power supply you're interested in providing a steady voltage. That's what the voltage setting is for. The current setting is a current limiter -- if your load draws more … current than you've set the limiter for, it lowers the voltage until the load draws only the amount that you set the limiter for. The idea is to keep your electronics from frying if you've made a mistake. …

Power supplies don't push current; loads pull. 6A is the maximum current that the supply can provide, but it's perfectly happy to supply less. If you have a load that's rated for 12 volts and you attach it to that supply (or any other 12 volt source) it will draw the current that it needs. …
