Some AV packages use Bloom filters, which are very efficient but prone 
to false positives, and in ways that may bear no relationship with the 
intended target pattern so it may not be possible to explain why.

Others are just lazy. ;)

A few years back many of us discovered a popular AV package was flagging 
all LiveCode-based apps as "possible malware".  A quick email to the 
vendor put us all on the while list.
