IMHO, the reason is, if nothing else, that this is how Mail mode
behaved on a tty since v21.1, and users did not complain too loudly
(or we would have changed that).  I really don't think we should
disable that fontification now just because you happen to dislike it.
Perhaps all you need to do is play a bit with your colors.

Failing that, here's a suggestion for a more complicated solution:
define special faces for Mail mode, so that they could be customized
without affecting general-purpose faces such as comment face.  Then
people who don't like fontified citations could disable that, but
still have comments in program sources fontified as before.
(Personally, I think that using a face meant for comments in a mail
buffer is very far-fetched.)
