What are the benefits of trading posts that are not connected to trade routes?  They have such things as cattle and ivory.  Not sure if these are part of the original game or something knew woth WOL.  Can't see anything that I gain from them when I build one.

They provided 3 rather cheap and useful technologies in the past. However, the modding team decided to change how the African trade posts work. That's why they do nothing now. I know it is weird that they did not leave them present until the change.

It's because uncoding them and coding them back once they are functional would be a royal pain in the ass.
