Then why write it down if they are already doing it?

No, it's not. The alternative to some arbitrary CoC in any sane project is common sense and that's how it worked in the last few decades. CoC is a recent trend which some people are overly obsessed with. It may make sense in really huge projects for different (political) reasons but it can also quickly suffocate small- and medium-sized ones for no apparent added value.
