As a general answer, not a specific answer ( I don't know why it was done this way). Fuzzy controllers are nonlinear controllers usually controlling nonlinear processes, and in practice this approximate method works just fine. Years ago we did not have as powerful CPUs and therefor the faster approximations were used. Try implementing a fuzzy controller in a microcontroller and you fill see that the faster method is desirable.
But like I said at the beginning, it is all non linear and perfect accuracy is not needed.

Why did you implement defuzz with an approximated approach (by means of the trapz integral) if an exact approach exist?

Consider the following example:

params=[1 4.5 5 6];

which provides 4.1304, but the exact result is


which is 4.1765.
