Because they don't need to be prioritised at that level.

Imagine you have issue A and issue B, with A being more important that B.  How can a subtask of B possibly be more important than A or a subtask of A, if A is more important than B?  Subtasks in the backlog is utterly useless, unless your processes or prioritisation system are broken

Was if A can't be resolved without B being fixed 1st? In short you are saying subtasks don't work!

Then B should have been ranked above A.  Subtasks work fine, but you do need to get them on the right issues.
