This has to do with the publishers and the layouters. Often the digital "raw" material is not even available to the publishers. They just get the finished product. Then you have several different digital versions since therer is no standard. Converting those is simply to expensive and its easier to scan and OCR the printed book.
If you do not even spellcheck it, well...
