The Rambam, being the quintessential Spanish Posek, thus defines the tradition for “Sephardic Tzitzit”. Furthermore, it is not that we prefer to mention it, but rather it is not relevant – there is no “Sephardic” or “Ashkenazi” way to tie tekhelet since poskim from those communities didn’t have tekhelet – rather there are traditions from which those communities naturally draw upon – Rambam for Sephardim, Tosafot/Rashi for Ashkenazim. That being said, since the question was never decided as such, many Ashkenazim hold like the Rambam.
