Hmm, I think you're right, though this only holds for street names.
StreetView does use apostrophes in some names of *things*, such as
here:

But anyway....

I don't think there are any apostrophes on streetview streets, are there?

They're probably left off because they would just be little black dashes which could be confused with features.
