Because the appearance of the Button-Text is controlled by the 
CellOption ButtonBoxOptions, which is a list of options you could use 
for Button (or alternatively a style name of the current stylesheet). 
This option is somewhat hidden in the option inspector but can be found 
in Formatting Options -> Control Options -> ButtonBoxOptions. If you 
change the settings there to e.g. {FontFamily->"Courier"} you can 
achieve the same changes from the options inspector and will change the 
appearance of all buttons within that cell. Many, including me find it 
easier to use a programming construct like Style, though. Also note that 
also the following should work:
