Is there a freely available documentation thereof?

Why a user would prefer one option over the other? I assume that both
controllers offer at least slightly different capabilities.
If so, then it could be the driver which would decide which one fits
better for the requested LED class device configuration.

Such a design is uncommon for LED class DT bindings. It should
suffice to have a single DT LED node per LED. I have an impression
that you're exposing too many hardware details here.
You can use led-sources property (see Documentation/devicetree/bindings
/leds/common.txt and drivers/leds/leds-max77693.c where it is used).

It is also not clear to me why single green color LED presented here
would have to use tri-led sink? I suppose that the sink is predestined
for three-color LEDs.
