Burst fetches and page fetches benefit chunky modes more. Likewise, narrow blits like the ones used in texture mapping favor chunky modes.

Planar modes are favored by a simpler GPU design and bitfield partitioning strategies. Among them are the ability to shade spread palettes algorithmically and the famous dual playfield mode, as mentioned.
