Or maybe they are providing a differentiated range of services in a market. I am not aware of a requirement for all ISPs to provide an identical range of services.

In those parts of the world with market economies, you can probably buy reverse DNS as a service if you want to pay for it. And if reverse DNS is not important to most of the market, the small proportion that value it might find that the price goes up because the cost of provision is shared amongst a smaller group.
