    Are there any other cases like this? For example, is there any reason to use SEC_CLIENT_* options if all daemons in a pool use only Password Authentication? My assumption is no since Password Authentication is only for daemon-to-daemon communication.

Both users and daemons use the SEC_CLIENT_* options when they connect TO an HTCondor daemon.  However, it is the server-side that ultimate decides the policy, so there is generally no reason to set the SEC_CLIENT_* options unless you want to make them MORE restrictive than what the server requires.
