In Soviet-era books available when this was first encoded, Cyrillic extensions were often handwritten in, and handwritten forms do not necessarily reflect typography. And the typographical preference may have changed since then, it will be interesting to see what recent samples folks can come up with.
I understand that many of the modifiers were in fact generally written
on typewriters by overstriking letters with commas etc. That explains
the variant positioning.
