[Avodah] editorial intent

Chulin 102 a tells separately of rav yakov and rav ashi who posed rivit
sized containers (one glass, one clay) so that (per Rashi) people could
measure their own containers (for hand washing purposes). It made me think
of a general editorial intent question. Why report two seemingly equivalent
cases? Were these the only two rabbis who posted measures? Was there
something materially different about the cases? Similarly, in the other
cases, why does the same exact story appear in more than one mesechta. Any
thoughts appreciated.
