I assume you're asknig about why it's not in armv8_pmuv3_perf_map?
We only list those events required by PMUv3, which are guaranteed to be
implemented by any PMUv3 compliant implementation.
While 0x1D / BUS_CYCLES has been allocated a common event number, it is
not required by PMUv3 and may not be implemented. In the latest ARM ARM
(ARM DDI 0487A.g) you can find the required events listed in D5.10.6
