That is true, but we still allow the user to control the other similar
extensions, which all fit your description.  So why should support for
bracketed paste mode be different?  It's inconsistent, and I can't
think of a reason why we would want this inconsistency.

I don't think that inconsistency is a strong enough reason to introduce a customization option, especially for a setting that has no user-visible behavior. There are certainly several other optimizations in the the Emacs code base that can't be turned off.
