In miai counting (as described in Mathematical Go, for example), this position is 1 point for black:

n-territory is not a subset of miai counting but relies on current territory. I will look later whether your examples coincide with miai values accidentally. No time now.

Current territory and n-territory are designed for the middle game. For the endgame, accurate values cannot be guaranteed. Nevertheless, it is fun to study your positions just for the sake of doing it:

This could become Black's territory. Therefore a reduction sequence by White is tried. However, a sente reduction sequence does not exist here! Therefore no reduction sequence is actually played here. After the attempt of making a reduction sequence, Black has still not surrounded any intersections. Therefore his current territory is 0.

A White reduction sequence is then not needed. The inside intersection is Black's 1-territory. 50% * 2 points = 1 point.
