My understanding is that it's so their products can be legally displayed and sold by licensed retailers in the few countries that ban public display of the swastika. So in the countries where it isn't a problem (which is most), we have to put up with a black rectangle or suchlike on WW2 German aircraft tailfins, instead of a swastika, in the box art.

I've not great objection, so long as the decal sheet inside the box includes proper tailfin swastikas so I can build and finish my WW2 German planes to a historically correct appearance.
