You need 2 referees for MN application, one of the 2 refs must be a BC and over 25yrs old and the 2nd ref just needs to be a professional doesn't have to be British.

Is it because people don't bother to post after getting approvals or don't apply for one?
Spots on! A lot of folks don't bother to apply for a travel passport straight after becoming a BC if there is no urgent need for it.
