However the budget department is one and the same, and who gets assigned OT also affects the company resources in a global way.

Devs constantly shifts from doing OT to regular hours. Making them sure they work on the more important issue will prevent any other departments of investing an extra budget based on the community feedback.

You also have people who can fill in different departments, some people call them shufflers.

Although your analogy makes sense, it doesn't properly apply to a company viewed as an entity.
