New CPUs greatly benefit from using LPDDR5 RAM which is why it's soldered onboard. You could say the standard has gotton higher since this wasn't always a requirement. Sure, you can find plenty Intel 13th Gen U/P-series laptops with expandable DDR5 slots, but only at the mid-range and lower price point.
So if getting RAM slots is more important to you than quality of display, keyboard, battery, weight and build quality for a laptop then by all means, vote with your wallet and show your support for modularity.
