Are the sub configurations of .2 and .4 because there's a believe that you can actually hear the multichannel audio that low, or just an effort to balance the sources of the sound around you?

No, the implicit assumption here is that all things are otherwise within sensible limits. At THAT point you are then gauging that contrast matters the most. Contrast (to pick one) does not matter...
