Mostly because of educational purposes and because the ENC28J60 are well
known in the Arduino maker scene. In this case, the question is not
"What could be easier" but "what is available and how to learn
something" (e.g. writing an ethernet driver).

He is a guy of our local hackspace :)

Isn't the W5500 an ethernet controller with hardwired integrated TCP/IP
Stack? This would mean that you can not use the Nut/NET stack, but have
to use the limited functions of the Wiznet chip? Or did I miss anything?
