Perhaps the cases with thongs were used as powder measures for their muzzle loaders? Kind of tough to close the breech on a trapdoor or Sharps with a thong in the way, and the combined pressure and heat and gas escape on firing would likely have make the thong ineffective for repeated use and possibly even a single use.
