Nikon Lens with Manual Override Focus- Confused on Design

I have a Nikon 18-140 below. I THOUGHT Nikon lens which had manual override only had M/A-M switch. This lens only has an A-M switch.

Yet from my research it seems turning the focus ring, while in A mode, is OK to do.

Why did Nikon leave M/A-M switch often found in higher-end Nikkor lenses?
