I don't know about other people, but I don't show cuff when I wear a jacket or sport coat because it is "correct." I show cuff when I wear a jacket or sport coat because it looks better
than not showing cuff. But yeah, I agree with you that it's befuddling why one would want to show cuff on a jacaket worn to work and not on one worn casually.
