I'm not sure why it should. We introduced get_template_part() in order to
DRY up code. single.php has its own code that isn't used elsewhere; same
with page.php.

If you want to override page.php, you can do so, on a number of different
hooks or via a child theme. get_template_part() was not designed for plugin
overrides as much as child theme overrides.
