They are all over the place in seatpost size. As long as the seatpost manufacturers made them in 0.2 mm increments across the range, why bother? Grab a smaller or larger diameter one out of the bins.

I think that they had one dull and rusty reamer at the Peugeot factory that fell on the floor one day, rolled under a cabinet and laid there next to all of the missing files. Just a hypothesis. Maybe they had a lot of seat tube reamers but none of the same size. That doesn't explain the apparent absence of the files though.
