Damping is important for MTB because you're trying to absorb larger amplitude impacts. For high-frequency, small amplitude perturbations, it's better to have a very lightly damped system to maximize responsiveness. The plunger seals provide enough damping to prevent unwanted movement of the post, but otherwise, the system is free to respond quickly.
