The reason for this is that bench seats take up quite a bit of space and cannot be easily moved from their static location. If you think about it, how many times have you seen someone take a bench seat from a dining room to the kitchen to add additional space? It's not very likely, although if a room has sufficient room and a seating arrangement that would not change often, there very well could be a use for a dining room table with a bench seat. This is not to say that a bench seat is not useful, but having one in a dining room can severely limit the mobility and space of a room.
Unlike dining chairs, benches don't necessarily have to be purchased as part of a table set. You can buy it either as an extra, or find a statement piece that has the same general style, color or embellishments as the table.
When you are shopping for new furniture for your home it is important to think about what the furniture will be used for and just who will be using it. This is especially true when you are planning to buy a bench specifically used for the dining room. Some of your guests may be uncomfortable using a backless bench to eat a meal at. Think about the guests who will be sitting there and ask yourself if you would ask them to eat on a stool. If you would not, then maybe a backless bench will not work either.
