You'll see that each of these examples has a spot where there's no cabinets underneath, and the same would be true at the sink. With the work surface, you can find any reasonable place where it works out, sort of logically and reasonably, but for the sink, it has to be at the sink because everybody in a kitchen setting needs to be able to roll up to a sink and get a glass of water, or do the dishes, or whatever it happens to be.
