To investigate the why's, consider:

In[13]:=
Apply[f[#, Frame -> True] &, {{1, 2, 3}, {4, 5, 6}, {2, 3, 4}}]
Out[13]=
f[{1, 2, 3}, Frame -> True]

This keeps only the first argument (# is #1)!

In[14]:=
Apply[f[##, Frame -> True] &, {{1, 2, 3}, {4, 5, 6}, {2, 3, 4}}]
Out[14]=
f[{1, 2, 3}, {4, 5, 6}, {2, 3, 4}, Frame -> True]

Now MultipleListPlot for f will work too

In[15]:=
Apply[MultipleListPlot[##, Frame -> True] &, {{1, 2, 3}, {4, 5, 6}, {2,
3, 4}}]
