Why are the 1982 and 1940 Episcopal instances under a separate text authority from the 338 others?


It looks like a separate translation. Different translations get their own authorites unless it looks like a composite translation (i. e. the translation comes from several sources). In this case the translation appears to come from an editorial committee and it is also copyrighted.

Makes sense, but makes life less smooth and more time-consuming.
