That does seem an odd choice. 

I wonder whats the rationale there, have the co-ax share ammo with the Squad LMG so the troops can steal the IFV's spare ammo if needed?

Or "not enough volume to store a MG5 with relevant ammo"?

Probably the more plausible explanation.

I recall reading that it was something to do with keeping it within A400M transport limits, but I thought it was a mass thing rather than a volume thing.
