But I guess I’m trying to figure out generally how it is one justifies charging more the more parties are involved.

Because presumably *you* own the intellectual property; they are yours to sell as you see fit.

I copy and pasted from another photographer’s T&Cs which says if other interested parties want a license to the images they can opt in for an extra 25% of the photography fee.

Haven't heard of that before.

Can someone remind me why it is, that we, as photographers, don’t just charge for the job and then let all the parties involved share?

Because you can instead sell to unrelated parties.
