What is the significance behind this omission?
Already addressed above but I'm in a similar situation to those cited in the OP and there's just no benefit to having a gas or store card for me. I use the PenFed Platinum Cash Rewards card for gas since it is 5% at any pump with no limit and rewards automatically credited each month. Additionally, if you look at this page on this very site you'll notice that no gas company cards are listed and some reasons stated above are mentioned as well:
I don't shop enough at a single store to make any store card worthwhile. For select department stores my BCP gives me 3% and it covers all the department stores I could want but I'm not a big department store shopper.

They do but scoring isn't all that matters.
