Let's not be judgemental just because someone is using an older technology. Physical books still meet many use cases ebooks don't (and can't). "Mature technology" is not the same as "obsolete technology."
Which, I think is the point that many are missing. KB has a strongly stated core vision for how Scrivener works, and it relies upon certain plumbing in MacOS to deliver that functionality. Some of the limitations in the iOS version of Scrivener are there not because KB felt those limitations were a good fit, but because of how Apple implemented that plumbing (and the parts they didn't). If Apple never implements it in iPadOS, then it's a moot point.
It's like fiber internet -- it doesn't matter how much better it is than cable or DSL, if your local providers never roll it out.
