Can you establish any evidence for the claim that the "vast majority" are on igneous rock?
The bosses were most likely used to lever against when the stones were being moved.

If it's true that the "vast majority" of these are on igneous stone, then perhaps the reason for it is that stone like granite isn't as easily shaped as the sedimentary stones that were used in the "vast majority" of ancient monolithic structures.

In other words, they've been smoothed off the stones when it was easy to do so, and left on when it was not.
