Runway lights

I have a big question!
Why do the runways of some airports have lights that mark the center of the runway and other airports only mark the contour?

A Runway Centerline Lighting System (RCLS) isn’t installed on every runway in real life while a Runway Edge Light System is more commonly to find.

When there is no RCLS in IF, there is most likely no RCLS in Real Life as well.

Pretty interesting.
