Applications don't read these files. They are read by the the X11
startup code. So any changes to the contents of these files must be
updated in the system with xrdb.
The most likely problem is that XEmacs used to read resources from the
"Emacs" class, but no longer does (this behavior has been deprecated
for many years, and finally removed about a year ago). You need to
use the "XEmacs" class now. There's also an environment variable you
can set to get the old behavior, but I forget where it's documented.
Aidan implemented it, he would know.

No; it's not even default yet.

I don't recognize these.
