Distros may have a different viewpoint than you. They may not want to
add anything boot loader specific and are happy if all systems
independent of their architecture can be booted in the same way, e.g.
via UEFI and GRUB. Cf.

Currently OpenBSD, FreeBSD, Fedora, and Suse rely on booting via UEFI.
And Debian is ready for it.

That U-Boot implements the UEFI API and this is in wide use in no way
contradicts U-Boot being the main boot loader for ARM.

Nothing pretended here ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
