I wouldn't say its lack of knowledge either that developers may chose webforms over mvc for example. Any design choice is to be considered in the context of the immediate and possible future requirements. Another reason to choose webforms is in quickly achieving a simple clear cut urgent business objective. The business user doesn't care if you've adopted MVC, they just want results fast and webforms makes it easy to throw up a page or two that lets them browse the data they want, and usually about 2-3 years later that little app will be completely superseded by something else anyway. The MVC pattern has been around before ASP.Net though sometimes you'd think Microsoft has just invented it and we now all need to change our 'old' clunky ways to the 'new'. Unfortunately there will never be one magic bullet solution for all problems.
