Resistorless spark plugs

So it looks like there are spark plugs with built in resistors and spark plugs without

What did our cars come with ? The dizzy cap engines ? Coil on plugs ? Is there some way to tell this from realoem.com etc ?

Can we pretty say that any engine built before a certain year would not have had such resistor plugs ? If so, any idea on that date ?

Do resistor-less plugs burn hotter ? Even if they do, would it make any noticeable difference, either by butt dyno or by fuel economy ? Thanks..

I highly doubt spark plugs would give more power unless you drive a formula 1 car. Bavauto sells upgraded coils but I think those are just scams.
If first you don't succeed you must try again, and then again
