Can anyone tell me why some end links on Subs and SD's stick out past the lugs and why some tuck neatly inside the lugs? Looking to buy my first and it just seems like something you would see on an homage, not on the real thing?

First pic lugs look thicker, second pic lugs are thinner. Maybe ceramic vs non ceramic models?

You are looking at the ceramic (116600) vs non ceramic (16600) SD model. It is the design of the watch. You will NEVER EVER get the build quality of a Rolex in homages.

In essence Rolex is seeking to lessen the severity of the Seadweller's relative thickness as it transitions from watch head to bracelet and around the wrist. The longer end links help this transition to "flow" as opposed to the "abrupt" change in height from head to bracelet. This is not an issue on the much thinner Submariner. And on the Deepsea it's even more pronounced; although not much helps with that massive beast.
