For the same reason you can do

     put 17 into B

but cannot do

     put 17 into (B)


(My over-simplified way of thinking of it is ..

B     is a container - you can put values into it or take them out.

(B)   is just a value - you can only take it out.

Similarly,

   line XOUNT of fld "f"      is a textchunk - you can set its textcolor

but (line Xount of fld "F")    is just a value
