That is because there is no need to set anything on the uplinks.

Uplink port groups are distinctly different from normal port groups. There is absolutely no reason to have these settings on uplink port groups, as they do not generate any frames themselves and merely forward traffic for the vNICs/vmk interfaces on attached port groups, there is no need to even expose a similarity visually like this. These settings and others like security apply to normal port groups only.
