I have not seen the list, but would guess that the "OPTIONAL" part is their option, not yours. That is, if they want to hear them, they will ask, so be prepared.
I would also interpret this as meaning they will lean more heavily on the sight reading than on having you prepare 10-15 pieces. The sight reading makes the biggest difference in many of these auditions.
Hope this helps some.
