I believe that the reason is the lack of appstream metadata in Kali repositories:

Debian repositories have this. But we are using reprepro to manage the repository and it doesn't offer this feature currently.

Due to the age of the OS (Kali Moto [v1], Kali Safi [v2], Kali Rolling <= 2018.4), these legacy versions are no longer supported.
