Hard to say.  It might just be a case of going with ansi-color.el's
default.  ansi-color-apply-on-region was changed to use overlays in [1:
0e3c1e3ea6], but it's unclear why.  The commit message just says

    (ansi-color-apply-on-region): Use extents or overlays instead of
    text-properties.

[1: 0e3c1e3ea6]: 2001-01-09 11:38:28 +0000
  (ansi-color-process-output): Use markers instead of positions for start and 
end of region.[...]
