The problem is that we don't have any way of probing from the computer
side whether or not the radio is in 50 or 100 channel mode. On another
Kenwood radio that had similar behavior, I tried various methods of
trying to guess based on the contents of the memories, but it was pretty
much always wrong for someone and/or provided quirky user behavior.

I think it's infinitely more common to have your Alpha tags enabled
these days, so I think CHIRP taking that assumption is pretty
reasonable, in the absence of other options...
