Actually not allways, depends on the language. In my native language we also called it "black list"(translated has a space). Reason is that my country never had balck people so no one found it offensive or noticed a problem with it. However blocklist would sound silly translated back and closest sane translation would mean "list of blocks" where denylist would make a bit more sense as "list of forbids".
