have expected to include the tab stops/widths.

Both styledText and htmlText representations do include the tabStops (and tabAlign) settings - however both those formats (by default) only encode the field content (e.g. paragraph styles, character styles and text).

If you want the properties inherited into the field content (i.e. from all ancestor objects, including the field itself) then you can use the 'effective' adjective.

In contrast, rtfText is always generated as if 'effective' is specified (as you can't encode the notion of inheritance of property values in RTF) - however, as has been noticed, it does not support the tabStops nor tabAlign properties).
