One of the reasons for vertical buttonholes on a front placket in sewing and it's true for knitting as well is the width of the buttonhole band. Usually it's not wide enough to allow the horizontal buttonholes plus knit fabric on either side of the hole. Plus, although they could be done with extra balls of yarn or by knitting each section one at a time, it's certainly more painful to do.
The buttonhole here works very neatly for a vertical opening.
