I did some additional investigation of this issue.
Attached is a wad to help with testing. It replaces MAP01, contains 32 DM spawns, 32 Team Spawns, score items for CTF and Skulltag, and a Super Shotgun.

To test respawns in a given mode, make sure sv_spawnfarthest is set to "true" and sv_maxlives is set to 2 or higher, then navigate to MAP01 in the given mode.

The following maps always use random spawns, ignoring sv_spawnfarthest:
- Team LMS
- One-Flag CTF
- Skulltag
- Domination
- Teamgame (ACS)

Additionally, some modes only have broken spawn behavior of sv_useteamstartsindm is set to "true". This issue affects the following modes:
- Team Deathmatch
- Team Possession

Based on my testing, I have not noticed any free-for-all modes impacted by this issue.
