The conjecture about A231002 is more or less explained in the sequence,
but incorrectly stated as "the sequence has a period of 28".
What is meant is that the characteristic sequence of these years has a
period of 28, i.e., n>0 is in the sequence iff n+28 is in the
sequence, and since 5 and 23 (= -5 (mod 28)) are the only terms <= 28,
this is the sequence of numbers congruent to +/- 5 (mod 28).
(strikingly similar to the sequence of numbers = +- 1 (mod 9^3), cf.
Robert Israel's reply.)
I added the formulas and may add a link to this post which has a link
to the sequencer survey website.

Concerning A169627 "A conjectured sequence of bud numbers for
eucalyptus flowers."
The given terms match other sequences than n^2+n+1, in particular one
of the toothpick sequences, which might well be the better match, in
view of the similar construction principle. (Astonishingly, the
matching one is a "hexagonal variant", while one of the illustrations
ressembles a lot to the original Toothpick sequences, at a first

Concerning A152929, the formula (163 F_n + 63 L_n)/2 can be further reduced
using L(n)=F(n+1)+F(n-1) and successively F(n-1)+F(n)=F(n+1),
to: a(n)=50*fibonacci(n)+63*fibonacci(n+1)
(= 37*fibonacci(n+2)+13*fibonacci(n+3) = 24*fibonacci(n+2)+13*fibonacci(n+4)...)

(more to follow)
