- Depending on design, they can consume less power. I'm not exactly sure though that Nikon selected the best technology to do that, and that might be why it's turned off when the camera is off. But at the least, when both the EVF and rear LCDs are off to save power, the "top" display can remain on and allow you to change settings, while limiting power consumption.

- Because they aren't meant to display a picture, they can use technologies that have advantages in some critical areas, such as the capacity for a display to remain fully legible, even under bright sunlight, which are incompatible with image reproduction.

Then perhaps an e ink display would have been better suited, something like an e-reader, with extremely low power requirements, and could have persisted the information being displayed even with power off.

Exactly my thought! low power display with information available even if a camera is turned off would make sense, otherwise it's just waste of precious space (they could put some dials instead for a more direct control).
