Off-platform, ok, I can see why that might be useful, when games become brands and expand, Twitter has similar restrictions on tags. But, to not even allow “blox” in any experience name, I can’t think of any reasonable explanation for why that’s needed.
It’s embedded in the history of Roblox, since, practically, there has been Roblox.

I’m not sure if it’s a direct reaction to something, but, if it is, I think something much less restrictive could easily be done - e.g., adding a new icon to signify an experience is endorsed/official/promoted (and moderating images imitating it), or filtering “official” and “Roblox” being used in the same title.
When games could be sponsored, there was a similarly distinct label, so it clearly can be done without going as far, the same for some models. There are also ways to highlight content as being the only official version/source, like the sidebar or a larger header section on Discover.
