Those are used where you do not have a neutral available. The neutral is derived through the load. The code now requires a neutral it switch locations with a few exceptions. It is basically where you can add one later without disturbing the building finish.
The 2 wire timers and occupancy sensors work fine with an incandescent. There is no real net waste since that current would be going down the neutral anyway.
It is a MA or less but the capacitors in a LED or CFL will store that up and make them flash acting as a relaxation oscillator.

Dimmable LEDs lower the current through the led gradually. Non types try to maintain current. A dimmable can be made cheaper than non.
