I'd say its much more likely that they're just trying to save some space
on end user systems where stuff is built from source by users and the
users are too lazy to strip things him/herself if they happen to want
that.  In my experience, upstreams are receptive to patches that make
the stripping behavior optional, for example "STRIP = strip" and
invoking "$(STRIP)" in Makefile which can then be overridden for example
with "make STRIP=/bin/true ...".

BTW rpmbuild will strip things anyway unless a bug or explicit measures
in specfiles prevent it from doing that, see also
