Rydel is on a distinguished road
Same reason warriors drop both and the reason that Wormtongue isn't more likely to drop his boots than any other monster with the same number of drops; there isn't code for monsters being more likely to drop specific things, or even associate that those things would be related. The game doesn't even see any relation between the Mage player class and Mage enemies.

I suppose it may be possible to add an additional edit file that includes relationships between items and enemies, though it would have to be rather long for a very small change in gameplay.
I'm trying to think of an analogy, and the best I can come up with is Angband is like fishing for sharks, and Sil is like hunting a bear with a pocket knife and a pair of chopsticks. It's not great. -Nick
