This is because the numbering must follow the direction of the double bond. Naming it as 2,3,4,4-tetramethylcyclo-1-hexene would make the number second double bonded carbon as 6, which would be incorrect since double bond carbon atoms are assigned the smallest possible locator numbers unless there is a functional group present.
