you're mixing up two different concepts here.

Current version != Newest version. So in fact current (Tb) == older (Addon). 
current(Addon) == beta(Tb)

The Newest Addons can be not compatible with /current /version of Thunderbird 60 (due 
to breaking changes in the manifest). If the latest version doesn't work with 
Thunderbird Release (60.6.1) what's the point of trying to push it out to people? most 
users won't be running the Thunderbird beta.
