I don’t understand why it matters if the shutter closes for brief intervals over the 30 second period?

What is the practical consequence of that behavior? Or is it purely a benefit (avoiding blowouts, allowing stacking,)? Light trails having “gaps” is all I can think of.

A single exposure has lower noise than numerous stacked shots. That said, good results can be had from either.

Wouldn't noise be the same, given that noise is a function of the total number of photons “counted”?

You can just as accurately measure a volume of water using a many scoops in a small measuring cup, as you can measure it using a five gallon bucket?
