It sounds like in the organizations you have worked for the people responsible for the front end dev work are not considered part of the overall design team?

The design systems you are describing (all valuable, by the way) have a lot of similarities with how I’ve managed design teams in the past, but one strong enabler is that in many successful design-driven orgs, the front end developers (ux engineers) are actually part of the overall design team (and similarly embedded in the scrum teams, just as designers are). This really helps centralize design systems and patterns while decentralizing adoption strategies. When the ops portions of the design systems are a shared responsibility between front end engineers and designers who also happen to interface directly with the agile production teams, very powerful things can happen.
