Perhaps this is for a couple of reasons that spring to my own mind.
First us that it isn't very common to lower the rear by as much as the front. A little bit of nose down rake is a good thing...
Second is that there is only about half the weight in the rear, so even a big RC height doesn't affect by as much as front.

Plus, perhaps, it is common to fit thicker anti roll bar to the rear...

So many variables to consider.

Roll centre moves quite a bit on mcpherson suspension, esp during suspension travel. In contrast, in the rear you have multilink suspension, and there the roll centre doesnt move as much. Also, in order to correct the RC in the rear you basically need new uprights or new rear subframe..
