Coated wire for running doorbell (Chime) wires?

I've been looking into supplies for running a replacement wired doorbell chime.

Most of the doorbell wire I'm finding on Amazon and at Home Depot are twisted wires and do not have a sheathing on them.

Are there code reasoning for this?
I've seen the following wires on Platt's site which mention an alias as a doorbell wire.

I'm hoping to use coated wiring mainly for aesthetic purposes.

Usually thermostat cable is used for doorbell wiring.

Thanks! I found this stuff at the local box store but It'll look ugly in my unfinished basement.
