Why do some options have "special order" charge?

Just out of curiosity, why do some options on Mercedes have "special order" charge? Not disputing how much they want to charge....they can charge whatever they want for their options, just curious why they decide to split them up into a "special order" charge on top of the option.

The particular one I'm thinking of is the "dynamic handling" package in US for the C350 coupe. It's like $1400 with an extra $250 for "special order" charge.

Probably due to "because we can" factor.
