See https://www.arin.net/resources/legacy/ FAQ #12 as one example for
both the RSA and LRSA.

It is common practice when negotiating contracts to remove or edit terms
and conditions that are known not to apply or are invalid for some legal
reason. By law, not all organization are equal, this is a legal fact
beyond the control of ARIN. ARIN must abide by applicable laws and
court rulings, in some special cases these conflict with the standard
terms and conditions in the RSA or LRSA.

In one way ARIN is not treating anyone special, I suspect, if you or
your lawyers can provide valid legal reasons why some term or condition
doesn't or shouldn't apply to your organization ARIN will probably work
with you and provide a contract that resolves that issue for you.
I have all confidence that these changes are not made willy-nilly, and
that they are made for important and valid legal reasons.
