Default Torque on wheel bearing bolts

Could someone please tell me why the bolts that hold the wheel bearings to the knuckle have to be torqued to 92 ft/lb ? Those bolts aren't that thick. The wheel lugs get torqued to 96 ft/lb and they are much thicker. Is it to stop the bolt from backing out ? Seems like some loctite or some lock washers could fix that with much less torque. The 90 something holding the disc calipers seems pretty high too. Is there something I'm missing ?
Still sore from trying to tighten them to 80 ft/lb
