What do the Black Tips mean?

My conclusion from continuing to scan photos is that here are many black tipped cultivars.
The Division 1 (trumpet) blooms with black anther tips that I have seen so far in my photos are Pops Legacy and Ombersley. 
From Division 2 I have seen Loch Owskeich, Ffitch’s Folly, American Heritage, Goff’s Caye.  (Ffitch’s Folly has an unusual two-lobed configuration of the pollen on each anther.)
From Division 6, there is Elfin Gold.

I’d be delighted to learn what this all means, and why the question was originally posed.

    I had thought he mentioned obvallaris- I do not recall seeing the black- but I left all of mine at the last show
