As noted by Johan, it's likely you have older versions installed which used 32-bit licensing applications. Current versions of CC applications (released in October at MAX) were all updated to use 64-bit licensing. (e.g. Photoshop CC 20.x, Lightroom Classic 8.x and Lightroom CC 2.x)

Older versions/applications will not be updated to work on newer versions of macOS.

All current apps are 64 bits already. Only a few helper apps are not. No doubt these will be updated in time, but don’t expect an update for older apps that are no longer supported.

Mojave will not cut off support for 32-bit apps. The next release after, likely will.
Microsoft is also headed toward 64-bit only.
iOS has been that way for a couple of releases.

I looked in System Information under Applications and the number of apps on my Mac that were 32 bit was startling. The majority were also Adobe related.

Lots of these are support apps, that you may or may not need anymore. Take Lightroom 6, for example. An older version, no longer supported. But the main Lightroom 6 app is 64 bits already. Only some support apps for checking your license are not, so it’s unclear what that means for Lightroom 6 users. Lightroom Classic is fully 64 bits, however and so are most main apps.

Apple has been loudly informing developers of this for years. They know. In some cases, older support apps will be replaced or phased out.

Isn’t it strange I think, that the only 32 bit stuff left on my system are all Adobe. About a dozen I think it was. Licence checkers, setups, uninstalled, all in various Libarary and support directories
