Look at the definition of the blocks in the block ini. All automatic blocks are based on a flow fetch (look in ezflow/classes/fetches). And this fetches are mostly all subtree-fetches at API level. Subtree fetches generate big SQL queries and cost more ressources than fetching objects directly via object id.

So if you add manually items, you know the object id's and you do not have to search the "newest" one in a defined source (subtree).
