Why do you assume it is so?, some survey about?

It's natural. Whenever I open a new row, it is to fill it.
Someone else might leave it empty and move the cursor elsewhere —no problem.

I want to insert a new row in my table but I don't want that it moves the text cursor to the new row at once

-1 from me

**Why? What is on your mind when you insert a new row?
I am not arguing, just asking.

We discussed this topic in the design meeting.

In fact, when adding a row/col before/after it's very likely that you want to add content there and progressing the cursor in the cell above/below or left/right makes sense. Low priority, however, since arrow keys allow this too.

I just insert some rows below if I know that I need it in future, but I don't want text cursor will move to another place from its current position!

Strange. You want to insert some rows just-in-case you will need them in the future, as if it were a complex and time-consuming operation?

It's strange for you, but it's what I do every day
