Another way to look at it: even if you may argue that the LF does not care so much about a little longer wires, you are usually dealing with MOSFET devices like the IRF510 which have plenty of gain even up into the VHF region. Layout problems could create HF or VHF instabilities even in an LF amplifier.
As for sockets for chips, many are SMD that are pre-soldered by the factory. Two which are through-hole are the 8-pin dual op-amp used for microphone amps, and the 2W stereo audio output amplifier IC. I suppose you could socket them. One could argue that the heat dissipation capability of the output amp IC might be a little compromized by a socket.
