Because the theme designer decided that font A looked better with their design
than the default fonts offered in the UI (FreeSans, FreeMono). Fonts can have
a major impact on the look of a theme or the OSD, so you can't blame the
designer for being very specific in their choices.
We will probably come up with better font integration in the future. Ideally a
theme should default to using the font the designer intended, but be changed
in the UI to something different by the user.
