Most of those just break down faster, but almond leaves are for tads, as they add beneficial tannins that the tads eat.
i think you have your info a little mixed up.

the leaves listed are ones used primarily because they DO last longer in vivs (dont break down faster)

also, tannins and tanic acid, arent (as far as i know) consumed, rather it has a natural anti-fungal property that makes its use a sort of substitute for methylene blue. its one of those added benefits to using leaves which are generally added to provide tads with security.

tads will eat some algae or bacterial that grows on the leaves though.
