They are the same locations just different style covers.

The first ones (cast) would use short bolts and the fabricated ones probably use a long allen bolt.

A lot of aftermarket covers only use two bolts on the top row but the heads have three bolts there. Not an issue as long as the covers are decent quality

The center one on the top row isn't needed on a good rigid cover, like a cast aluminum or a fabricated one with a nice thick flange.

I have the trickflow cast covers that have three bolts on the top row but i don't use the middle one

Why use it if it's not needed?

Make your own decisions on this stuff. It's not a cookie cutter world. My situation it's not needed so i'm not going to zombie forward and use it just because it's there
