The same is true of the combination lth (becoming lt) but not rth. Tolkien described this change in a couple places:

Sindarin Phonetic Development (Part 76)


S. [œi] became [ui] or [y]; [œi] > [ui|y]

One open question is how the diphthong [œi] developed in Sindarin, assuming it occurred at all. This diphthong is relatively common in the Noldorin of the 1930s (where it became [ei]), arising in the phonetic history of plural forms of words with a base vowel o, where the raising of [o] to [u] was usually inhibited in the final syllable of polysyllables:
