Why are stock rearsets spring loaded and aftermarket aren't?

I'm looking at rearsets and notice the rest bar is fixed, yet on both of my bikes the rest bar moves up.

I assumed this was because of scraping the pegs and the 700S has a metal "jiggler" on it so that if you touch ground it would wear first.

I look at after market and they don't do this.

Why?

Maybe because on aftermarket rearsets the footpeg tends to be higher, less likely to touch. Your also not going to fold your foot up into a solid footrest when right over.

One of the reasons I ask is because I do a LOT of city riding and every time I put my foot back on, I have to readjust it. I have to lift the leg twice because it's spring loaded. It might sound like a small thing, but my leg muscle locks up after about 4 hours of riding.
