Hmm??? Of course Bucket Fill uses an existing selection!
Bug nr. (choose a number) Bucket fill behaves strange with existing
Bucket fill behaves different when a selection is active.
An other point is, that you can make the same thing setting the threshold to 255.
No, I think it doesn't make sense, as long as they are not shortcuts to the bucket fill tool.

it might make sense to make those two use the Bucket Fill settings.
The Bucket Fill settings are used when filling using drag-n-drop so
this can be considered an unconsistency.
A normal user can not unterstand why a selection from the menu uses a tool setting.
You are right here. There are a lot of options, and after all it's really gradient fill.

the Gradient Fill UI is already cluttered enough. We shouldn't add
anything not gradient related there.
-fill with foreground/background color is usefull but does not really
integrate with the tools.
-bucket fill behaves not intuitive (and works to slow with threshold set to 255)
-too many tools for filling
