This is just one of those things that different creators deal with inconsistently, and there's no uniform approach. Going to warp in-system is only a problem when the writer chooses to make it a problem. So there's just no way to come up with a single rule that explains everything.
Maybe, but it sure is fun to extrapolate!

Personally I tend to treat shots of ships going to warp directly out of planetary orbit as a dramatic shorthand, unless it's clear from the dialogue or story situation that that's what's literally happening.
I think that when Sovereign Marouk watches the Enterprise going to warp from the window and says, "A fine ship, Commander!" that's pretty strong evidence that it's what really happens. :P
