Because that's how the maintainer configured it. (It is also the default
configuration, of course, but no-one is obliged to accept the default

In Fedora we effectively define a *baseline* requirement for updates of
various types to go from testing to stable, and beyond that, we grant to
maintainers the power to choose the policy that will apply to their
updates (and, therefore, the responsibility to choose wisely).
