The simple answer to your question is -- because THAT is what OEMs do -- prevent folks from getting into the advanced BIOS/UEFI options because that allows folks to change stuff that can make the PCs unstable, and in worst cases, prevent them from booting into Windows, and OEMs don't want folks returning PCs as "not working" when they have made such unauthorizec changes.
