Are wide angle lenses the most infrequently purchased?

As I look at camera kits with 1 or 2 lenses I notice they all have zoom lenses but you never see a specialty wide angle lens as a kit lens (not that I've come across anyway). Is that just because the kits are aimed at a higher volume hobbyist market and for whatever reason the overwhelming preference is for zoom? Or is there some other reason?

Thanks
