The "problem" here (which is very much the way HTTP protocol was
designed) is that it isn't _git_ that updates repository on remote
side on push (which knows about hooks), but _web server_ via WebDAV.
And web server knows nothing about hooks.

Perhaps that would get improved when "smart" HTTP protocol gets
implemented (currently in the phase of design, I think just after
designing protocol).
