I think the first one I know. If a photo is used in the list but does 
not the Monument istorice template, the bot goes to Commons and inserts 
the template to the file (the template has the number which is used in 
the list; no other files get the template even if they are identical). 
It often helps to identify pictures which are used in the lists in one 
Wikipedia but not in the other. For Romanian lists, if they only exist 
in Romanian Wikipedia, this is not expected to have an impact (but will 
help if you ever translate the lists and use them in another project).

For the second one, I have no idea.

BTW, Maarten, do you plan to put coordinates? For my pictures of the 
Netherlands I did not add the coordinates because I knew last year your 
bot added them. For Belgium, I was not sure and added the coordinates. I 
am also planning to add pictures of some other countries, so that it 
would be good to know if the coordinates sometime will be added by bot.
