As Henning said, all of them combined, and also speaking from professional
experience in hardware design.  More parts = higher cost, always, and
especially so for multi-PCB designs compared to single-PCB.

Vendors like TP-Link no doubt would make some effort to cost down
connectors to the cheapest/flimsiest available (i.e. connectors with very
few connect/disconnect cycles), but they still represent additional BOM
items, additional assembly cost, etc etc.
