Why don't the system requirements list "persistent connection to the internet" since this is a Ubisoft title and it's going to use their "stay connected to internet or your progress will be lost DRM scheme"?

Maybe because this is over steam then they think that you are connected to the Internet so they don't say you have to be?
No because ubisoft and ea (among a few others) both have additional needless DRM overlaid into the steam versions.

Here's SH5 ubisoft with its new drm:

3rd-party DRM: Ubisoft’s Online Services Platform. Ubisoft requires a permanent Internet connection to play this video game at all times
