Playing something like "Standard Modern Precision" in which 1NT is 14-16, 2 opening is 6+ and 2 opening is 4415 minus a card, do you play these auction as showing minors or only clubs?

I think I'd play it as the usual meaning, 8+ cards in the minors.
Except for sequence 2 where you had the opportunity to show a stopper and could use 1NT to show both minors the target of exactly 2-5 (or worse, 3-4) in the minors is too small. And even in 2 I'd rather keep 1NT natural, in this case showing the balanced hand without a stopper.
