The reason is that many of the modifiers don''t actually modify the MAX model. Instead, the MAX file will store the original geometry + parameters for the modifier. For example, if you have a model and you apply the twist modifier, the MAX file will contain the original geometry plus instructions for twist.
Long story short - use a different file format.
