I don’t know about dual hex nuts, but with regard to lock nuts I was taught that the lock nut went on first and the full nut next. after fully tightening, the lock nut was backed off a fraction to pass the load onto the full nut. could it be that the dual hex nuts were used in order to cut down on the amount of tools needed to carry out emergency repairs. Just a thought.
