I do not expect "smooth bokeh" to have been a significant consideration in that lens design - it is a macro lens, which generally sell by resolution and contrast.

It is done to provide better correction, which will be quite an effort in a 1:1 macro lens that fast (most competing lenses are f/2.8 or slower).
