Because the tab stops are not part of the data of any formatted text properties. You can test this by creating a table field, setting the tab stops to whatever you want, typing some information, setting the clipBoardData ["rtftext"] to the rtftext of the table field, then pasting into a word document as formatted text. Word retains it's own tab stops, because none of the tab stops set in the table field are in the rtf text copied to the clipboard.
