Its really annoying trying to figure out why ships would go to spacedock for repairs instead of a drydock... It might be that the drydocks stay so busy you have to keep them open as much as possible.
Not all repairs require a drydock. I would surmise that drydocks are typically employed for major structural changes and/or new construction. Items like interior remodels and software upgrades would be a waste of a drydock's resources since they could be accomplished pier-side in Spacedock. Especially in an age of transporters.
