B1 is an easy-to-absorb source of carbon and a bit of nitrogen. Whether any of it is still available after autoclaving, I cannot say.

Maybe. If you don't add it, and you still get reasonably good success, then leave it out. Otherwise, if adding it still provides the plant with something beneficial - even if not what somebody originally set out to be, then could always just leave it in too.
