OIS (built in the lens) is not the best solution, it's a sub-optimal solution - but the only one available for DSLR.

All mirrorless cameras have, or will get 5-axis IBIS.
That is much better than OIS. And obviously, design and build of a lens without OIS is easier, faster and cheaper.

The lens designers know this and wisely anticipate on it.

That's an oversimplification. OIS is better in some ways, IBIS is better in others.
