The LSL games are all owned/published by Codemasters since ~2009, except for LSL Reloaded (Replay Games).

Codemasters typically does their own separate promotions for the LSL games 1-2 times per year.

Aye, but for the purpose of GoG.com - they also list it under Sierra (probably because that's who originally produced it). For example, here's all the listed Sierra games:

But - looking at that - I can see all the Sierra games are on sale - EXCEPT - for the Leisure Suit Larry games...

Sierra is listed as the developer for the LSL games, but Codemasters is the current owner and publisher of those games. Since the LSL games showed up on GOG about 3.5 years ago it's been this way - the "Sierra" (Activision) promos don't feature the LSL games because it's a different publisher.

Most of GOG's weekly sales tend to feature games by 1-2 publishers (or sometimes it's a mix of indie-developed games). Codemasters was last part of a weekend promo in May which also featured games published by Atari.

It just boils down to GOG featuring Activision and Codemasters games in different promos.
