Because if they put them in both, it would be overwrapped.
Seems it depends which paper they are made at.

Also they may be going back to the more easier recyclable packaging too.

I wondered if it depends on how long they have been in storage in the shop. :-)

Hey, It's an interesting question, I would also like to know the relevant answer.
They are always experimenting with new cost effective materials. But, once they settle on a new one, it means buying new packaging machinery. Maybe cheaper to run both.
It is definitely a money thing, for a bunch of reasons, some obvious, some not so obvious.

The options for producing a wrapped chocolate bar are either a two-piece wrapping, with some combination of foil and paper, or a sealed "plastic" envelope, done on a horizontal flow-wrapping machine. At a basic level, foil or plastic are necessary to stop greasy cocoa butter from migrating from the inside of the package to the outside.
