Why?

I can just about understand enforcing "complexity requirements" to prevent users from using stupidly simple passwords that would be guessed in seconds. Although checking whether the password has been exposed in any data breaches[^] might be a better option.

But why block the user from using an entire class of characters in their password? That would suggest that either a) the password isn't being stored securely[^], or b) the password storage code is trying to avoid some sort of injection vulnerability by restricting the input rather than fixing the vulnerability.
