Please understand that snap-fit enclosure design is a very specific use case, FreeCAD is used to create wildly different things. The important thing is to have all the basic tools to get most jobs done, even if it takes a little longer. Yes, it could be done, but who's going to implement it, that's always the question. There are many tools still missing in FC that are IMO more important to have.
And those hook and groove tools must be recent additions in SolidWorks, I don't remember seeing them when I took a refresher course on SW back in 2008. SolidWorks has been around for 21 years, they have an army of paid developers, and they make yearly releases, so they need to add new stuff every year.
Edit: just had a look in my SolidWorks 2009 Bible, and they were indeed there.
