Why does DXOMARK score M43 lenses so poorly?

I was looking into some lenses and went to glance at their M43 scores and I was pretty surprised by how low they were. For example, the Panasonic 12-35 f2.8 is the highest rated zoom lens for M43 they have scored and it is a 23 out of 60 though widely regarded as one of the best lenses in the system as far as I know.

In fact, neither Olympus, Leica, nor Panasonic has scored above a 31 for M43 lenses. I know these scoring systems are just that and we can determine quality for ourselves, but I was just curious as to why there was consistently low scoring for the system.
