> Just curious about why the focus on the newer exp2 and log2?

No particular reason, those happened to give slighy best results on macOS.  Across compilers, plain exp() is likely the most mature.

The quality of log() is irrelevant because it isn't used.  The table of log factorials can be precomputed to arbitrary exactness using tools other than the C math libraries.
