It's a good observation.
Symmetrical flange spacing and the maximized total spoke tension it provides is exactly what one wants in some applications, but not all. If you're designing a hub you have to think about what is enough total tension and then parlay the benefits of getting "extra" strength above that amount versus the drawbacks of reducing the bracing angle, albeit only in one direction. When wheels fail in practice, a pretty meaningful percent of them fail from side loads. So when you see this asymmetry on hubs that could have been made symmetrical, it's the designer making decisions on what will actually produce better reliability on average.
An exaggerated version of the same thing is seen on track hubs. They're the most could-be-symmetrical hubs of all, but proper track racing hubs usually aren't. The reason is that radial overloading is just not that much of a concern, but crashes and heavy sprinting riders rocking the bike side to side are.
