The 12GB ram config is quite odd. Why not 16GB...

If this was 12th gen with DDR5 I would buy 12 units.

Cost, maybe? LPDDR4 is natively dual channel, each die contains two channels even on the 12GB chip, if that was your worry.
EDIT: I was wrong, they even make single channel dies packaged together, actually the first 12 GB LDDR4 was like that in 2015, monolithic 12GB chips came only in 2018. At any rate LDDR4 is always soldered and is commonly manufactured in 3/6/12 GB sizes, unlike DDR4 sticks. To elaborate, I'm pointing this out in case you were thinking about the 8GB+4GB aberrations, with only half of the 8GB stick in dual channel mode, that grace the laptop and pre-built markets from time to time.
