My question is why would the devs put any resources into something we will see for all but 2 seconds and then move on. Alternatively, fleets may have their meetings in front of the manequins or the warriors mural, but how long will that last? Yeah, for about 5-10 minutes and then good bye.
Its already been said, all this stuff was made when season 6 came out. They just hang onto it until its time to release another. It probably took an environmental artist a few days to make all this crap since it's not interactive, not very intricate, and really are just mostly pre-existing assets placed on the map...

What you are suggesting is that it took a considerable amount of time compared to the items you listed that should be worked on instead which is not the case.
1hr of work @NYS Min Wage 7.25 = 725 Zen
725 x 102 (or current exchange rate) DL = 73950 DL <- can you earn that per hour in game?
