Will probably be there as soon as the game actually launches on Steam, because why would they keep the Mac version from Steam?

Well, because they are stupid. They had already proved us that ;-)

Fair, but the (arguably) stupid decisions they made, like the whole EGS exclusive thing or even doing the Mac version in-house (instead of giving it to, say, feral), were ones that probably made a lot of sense to them, economically.
I just don't see what economical benefit they could expect from keeping only the Mac version exclusive to EGS, so I doubt that's going to happen.

Only reason I could imagine: Their deal with epic mandates the same period of exclusivity for every version of the game, and since the Mac version launched some time later, it would also remain EGS exclusive for some time longer. But that's only speculation, more likely scenario is the Mac version coming to Steam on March 13th as well and the store page being updated by then.

Guess they don't realize they are just hurting themselves in the long run. What people need to do is BUY it on steam to show publishers "yeah, ya fraked up with epic, look at all the sales you had missed out on steam!".

If they make as much money with Steam now than they would have done without the exclusive, just delayed, then their next game will of course be another exclusive because why wouldn't they benefit from both store perks? If it tanks on Steam, they'll know why, they're not idiots. But IMHO it will still do well, there aren't that many people who will boycott even if they're vocal. Or they're like me and would wait for a $10 or so GOTY edition on sale in a few years anyways, with or without the EGS thing. :D (I still have Borderlands 2 and TPS to finish, so many games so little time...)

As I suspected there is no Mac version on Steam now that you can buy/pre-order/pre-load the game for half the price. Not that I was going to buy it now, but after all this wait they have decided to not sell it for Mac on Steam it seems, only on Epic Store.

or maybe it's because they released it for Mac on EGS a month later and will release it on Steam a month later?

That is if you ask me the most likely explanation.
Probably part of the deal with Epic that every version of the game has the same period of exclusivity.

Who knows what the hell is going on there, but the game does not even have Mac depots in the Steam database.

Borderlands 3 Patch and Hotfixes—today (March 26) for all platforms except for macOS, which is scheduled for April 2. "Woohoo!" I thought until I began reading. I'll save it for April 2, at least.

I'm currently taking a break from B3 but still disappointing. Up to now they've been keeping the Mac release in sync.

Hopefully this is an outlier and not a sign of things to come. There is a lot going on right now that could account for disruptions in their software pipeline.

I've lost interest in the game because of things like this, along with the bad Mac port and the absence of the game on Steam.

For April they are improving the drops for anyone playing coop, plus some weekly events (this week they've improved the drops from slot machines and proving grounds.)
Plus there's a big 10-key Shift code, good for the next week only: https://borderlands....o-op-loot-drop/

It's on Steam now of course, but I sympathize with the rest of the sentiment.

Considering the performance reviews for PC it seems the performance is about the same—not great, but very playable. I'm still enjoying it more than I did the previous Borderlands—especially the Presequel.
