To me, stabilization can come in handy when shooting a focal length above 100mm or so.

To me, it's important at many focal lengths, but the lens I mentioned was a 70-210mm.

Again, why do the users turn off in-body when they have a choice, at least this is my observation?

You're looking at sample bias. I suspect the people who buy stabilized lenses for Sony are ones who need the stabilization for a different reason (e.g. stabilizing the view in the viewfinder). They both have upsides and downsides -- Sony IBIS works fine turned on when on a tripod. Nikon VR lenses give distinctly worse images on a tripod unless you turn stabilization off.
