[B-Greek] The combination of prepositional phrase with conjunctions - rule or coincidence?

I have noticed when two prepositional phrases containing EIS are written back to back “without” any connecting conjunction it generally refers to two different things (e.g. Eph. 4:12; Col. 2:2). When they are written back to back “with” a conjunction, it seems it refers to two different but related items (Eph. 5:32; II Thess. 3:5). And when EIS is used as one prepositional phrase with two objects connected by a conjunction, it refers to one thing understood through two aspects (Phil 1:1; I Tim. 6:9).
Is this just a coincidence, or does some rule apply to this structure?
