Because we have no reason to prefer UTF-8 in this case.  No one tells
us that x-patch will be predominantly encoded in UTF-8.

The RFC doesn't say that UTF-8 is the default, either, and
text/x-patch is not defined anywhere with that default.  Which means
there's no default, and in that case 'undecided' is better, because it
heeds to the preferences of the user.
