The lack of support is due to the devices having inactive maintainers on GitHub. People who port the ROM to a specific device must regularly check in so that the device continues to receive updates. Without regular check-ins, Lineage will eventually drop support for devices. Quality over quantity, after all.
The bad news is that the older Motorola Moto G4 and Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 are no longer supported, even though the two smartphones are in the top 15 of most active models for Lineage OS. Even newer devices like the HTC 10 and Moto Z2 Play got the axe, though the two smartphones are not used as much among Lineage OS users.
Here is the list of 30 devices that are no longer supported:
Lineage OS 15.1 (Oreo)
Lineage OS 14.1 (Nougat)
That does not mean the list is set in stone. Other people can jump in and maintain devices to gain back Lineage OS support.
