Because that option isn't "passed" from Plot3D to SurfaceGraphics, but it IS passed to the other three. There's a lot of inconsistency in the graphics modules, and lots of options are not passed when you might expect them to be.

DrawGraphics (by David Park) fixes and avoids such problems very nicely.
