This is just what I've heard (rights are separate). I wouldn't think it's a major task, but it seems like the most likely explanation (that they are too cheap to buy the rights to the ebook covers). The publishers may have preexisting contracts with the artists that don't include ebook covers and they aren't up for renewal yet or they don't feel like paying extra money.

Not saying it's true (or right, for that matter), but it seems more logical than them just simply not including it because they are lazy.
