Manufacturers are always pessimistic on SD capacity. They always assume you will only take picture where the lowless compression will struggle and you'll get always the biggest size.
It's because they get sued for false advertising and capability if they assume "the best." But no one sues when they get more than they were promised, just less.

I guess car manufacturers don't feel this is a big issue for the funny quote they provide for their engine consumption figures. Since Ecology and Climat change is trendy, official car consumption dropped quite a bit on the specs but the actual consumption on new cars look to be the same as 10 years before. Many claim less than 4l/100km or 100km per gallon, but I never encountered a car owner that managed that.

Back to photography and camera, I think they are conservative and don't care because they don't make the cards themselves.
