1. Authors do not always have full control over which images they have to use, the bitmap image might be given to them and vectorizing raster images is non-trivial.
2. The pattern may appear as part of a photo that was added later. Again, you are assuming that authors always create the images they use themselves.
3. As proven by the link in the first post, sometimes such cases occur organically in photos as well (e.g. check the saturn photo, the fly photo and all the other examples).
