question is why are they needed?

or differently, why is the default (only) set in MonetDB.conf, rather then
where it is (first) used in Pathfinder/XRPC?

I would have expected that the newly added code in Pathfinder/XRPC, just
checks, whether the new environment variable is set; if so, it uses that
value; otherwise, it uses a default (defined there).

In case your code does already exactly this, the changes in MonetDB.conf,
should not be required for the new PF/XRPC code to work, rather, they mainly
document the new variable and its default value.
