 But, if you remove an eye from a mature clump, will the eye exhibit
 juvenile foliage in that or subsequent years until it too matures?  Or will
 it have the mature characteristics of the source from day one?
 
 Does anyone know why all this happens?

It has to do with the size of the eye assuming it has enough root structure 
to support the growth of the "eye" or bud.

The number of eyes on a division does not reflect maturity but the size of 
the eyes do.
Some plants never grow large enough eyes, for what ever reason, to have 
mature leaves.
