In the USA most MTB's have knobby tires too even though most riders stay on paved surfaces. I think many folks are just used to seeing knobby tires on MTB's & assume they're the proper tire. Also, I think knobby tires help absorb bumps which casual riders might like despite the slight speed penalty.
