You need to start to read through the various sources to figure out for 
yourself what is going on!

Starting from the bottom, in U-Boot 2017.03 all of the command sources 
are in the “cmd” directory. The “ubi …” command are all in ubi.c.  
Reading cmd/Makefile shows that file gets added into the build if 
CONFIG_CMD_UBI is enabled.

The next place to look is whether or not that is set in your defconfig 
for U-Boot or overwritten somewhere in a recipe in your Yocto build
