Because we see and have many horror stories on these forums where a 30 amp 3 wire outlet gets wired for 240 volts. We've even had members who have used an adapter cord on their 50 amp 4 wire rigs, to be able to plug into a miswired 240 volt 3 wire outlet and fry their stuff.
It happens, and more times than not (as reported here), it is a professional electrician who miswires the 30 amp outlet... as they are not familiar with an RV wiring and think the plug looks like an old appliance plug.
This is why I emphasized making sure you read on how to test outlets BEFORE plugging in.
