Why do legendaries have low item scores?

I’m not sure if it’s just been my current run of luck, but the last few legendaries iv’e found (at about lvl 32) have all had lower item scores than many green/blue guns with the same level requirement.
Why is this? Do they all need a buff or are their scores just badly calculated and they are in fact better than the item scores suggest? They seem better than random greens when iv’e been using them, i’m thinking their item scores need an adjustment in how their calculated.
Anyone else notice this?

The only time I ever even look at the Item Score is if I have two of the same item. I understand it’s purpose but it doesn’t seem to have much bearing on the item’s usefulness.

Annointments will increase the score by quite a bit I’ve noticed.
