I wonder that, too.

I came to the same conclusion - this is the hack I use:

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
(with-eval-after-load 'mailcap
  (let* ((apps (cdr (assoc "application" mailcap-mime-data)))
         (to-delete (seq-some (lambda (el) (and (equal (nth 0 el) "pdf")
                                           (equal (nth 1 el) '(viewer . 
doc-view-mode))
                                           el))
                              apps)))
    (setq mailcap-mime-data (cons (cons "application" (delq to-delete apps))
                                  (delq apps mailcap-mime-data)))))
#+end_src
