These are three images from a specific list of 12. What list?

Answer:
The digest of “Perpetual Motion Gimmicks” maintained by the US Patent Office. All these devices are, evidently, perpetual motion machines that people tried to patent.

    The examples would all seem to be variants on perpetual motion/overunity/overbalanced/gravity motors.

    Beyond the obvious, I’m stuck on what group of 12 they could be part of.

    Patents granted for perpetual motion machines.

    The patent office specifically disallows this, but these patents cleverly never mention the terms anywhere in their claims.

    Perpetual motion devices that managed to slip the patent office’s filters and get patented. The US patent office requires a working model for any device claiming perpetual motion to be patented. The list consists of all those patents that somehow managed to circumvent this restriction by suitably vague language.
