Given that Scrivener default auto-saves every 2 seconds, this would make for a crazy amount of updating trying to keep the external folder in sync, to say nothing of the confusion it could cause on both ends if you're syncing in order to share with another person and that person opens and beings working on a document while you're still typing in Scrivener.
There are other real, technical reasons why it's not set up this way, too, but I figured I'd throw that out there. It would slow down your work significantly to have the sync running constantly.

Having Scrivener sync all the time in the background would be a slow process given the amount of work it has to do - it is not syncing files that are the same but doing an export. There may be an option to have Scrivener sync on project close in the future though.
Scrivener lets you prepare a special external folder on your disk, which it will use to keep the text contents of a project up to date as changes are made to the contents of this folder.
