The display probably comes from the original design. Remember that
the Ben was a dictionary in a previous life.

I don't know why the dictionary had that display. Maybe this was
a choice driven by design, but it could also be that this display
was cheaper or more easily available for some reason than an
arrangement with stripes. Last but not least, it may simply be a
parameter nobody paid attention to.
