Hmm… Sometimes it’s hard to envision things without seeing an image and knowing the full context, but my first reaction would be to opt for consistency in those tooltips. I would vote for showing a tooltip for all those items.

If some of the items in the list have tooltips, I would expect all of them to have tooltips. I don’t think it would hurt the usability if you used tooltips for the items that clearly fit.
