does anyone know why the drawers / animaters do that?

in short, you cant pay someone to paint a rock breaking apart at background quality, the time budget isn't worth it.

Being an animator my self, it's typically because it takes too long to paint each frame to that quality, and computer/3D animation wasn't used much back when Dragon Ball Z was animated...

Before everything was done on computers, animation was done using so-called cels, which are sheets of plastic you paint all the moving features on and place them over a background image. Therefore, in older animations, when a moving part is supposed to be part of the background, it usually looks very obvious.

Yes, but why does it also happen in gaming? The things that are supposed to move are not only usually more detailed than the surroundings, but also in a slightly different color. Why?

because if a game does not have tells on gameplay features then its being a dick.
this goes for an enemy preparing to attack, that 1 rock you need to break in order to continue, that blatantly obvious colourful character you need to talk to, etc. etc.

its certainly more interesting than just giving it a waypoint.

You're partly correct, but you're missing the point, each episode gets a budget, and to paint each from of a rock breaking to the standards of the background, would not only take a lot longer but would harsh the budget. Nice try at explaining though, at least you're aware of traditional animation methods.

That's Lafayette from the Aristocats.
Just got to re-watch that movie for the first time in about 10 years.
