For instnance, I see 科せられる where I would expect 科される, or 発せられる where I would expect 発される. Am I just completely missing the picture, or are these verbs in some way affected like 魅せる was?

Are there any known reasons why する become せられる in passive form for just those types of verbs? I know that it doesn't commonly take that form for two-character verbs, like 開発する→開発される (not 開発せられる) or 支配する→支配される (not 支配せられる). Is that for prosodic reasons?
