My guess is that Spinbox was not present when tkinter.ttk was written 
(perhaps back in 8.4+tile days). I presume the intention has been to 
expand the set of themed widgets. Or perhaps it was simply overlooked. I 
suggest you open an issue on the tracker: "Update tkinter.ttk" and put 
'gpolo' and 'terry.reedy' on the nosy list. If you can, check if 
anything else is missing and put a list in the message.

If you look at the formulaic code for other ttk widgets in 
tkinter.ttk.py and you understand the Spinbox doc you referenced,
http://www.tcl.tk/man/tcl8.5/TkCmd/ttk_spinbox.htm
and that of one of the other ttk widgets, you should be able to 
contribute a patch.
