Why do deleted scenes on DVDs always look so degraded?

I went through film school at NYU, and worked in all aspects of production, including post-production, afterwards, but I still don't understand why deleted scenes in DVD extras always look as shitty as they do. Beyond not spending the money on color correction, they just always appear to have been shot on 8mm film and then transferred to early VHS. They also almost always still have time code attached.
Why would this be the case? Help please?
