Good night!

I wouldn't be concerned! Generally speaking it's not necessary to add square brackets when quoting and using . . . as it's already understood. Square brackets are rarely seen.

I do intend to stylistically correct them to be . . . rather than .... as that is the standard style used throughout the site.

In my English Grammar book it says to use an ellipses of 3 periods in between words and an ellipses of 4 periods in between sentences.  For this reason I used an ellipses of 4 periods in between sentences with missing content.

Yes from what I read about style books, that's one suggested method, but it's rare too, I hardly remember when I've seen it actually used. I find it awkward, so I do not use the four dots. Three is enough for concatenating anything.
