Why does my 24-105 have a different magnification (macro ratio) from a 105mm macro lens at same MFD?

That's why max magnification needs to be stated as a lens spec.

Yes, I hardly ever need to know the specification for the minimum focusing distance. The maximum magnification, however, is crucial, and cannot be derived from the minimum focal distance without considerable additional information.

Arguably working distance (to the front of the lens) is more useful information than subject distance (to sensor/film).
