As I'm not in with the design crew, and wasn't playing when a lot of the courses were put in, I'm probably not the guy to answer that question.
Regarding both courses at Hudson Mills, Black Locust at Kensington and Holly Woods, the option is there to play just a straight 18, or go for the 24 (at Hudson and Holly) or 27 (at Kensington) with ease. It provides some nice flexibility depending on time constraints/stamina.
I'm not as familiar with some of the other courses on your list, but I would assume the same holds true for some of them as well.
