This isn't limited to just shipping an init script, have a look at the
tomcat9 9.0.13-1 changelog entry which dropped the sysvinit script.
Continuing to support an init script also means to retain on all the
packaging boilerplate which got obsoleted by systemd config declaratives,
forcing the least common denominator of init system features.
