It would appear that the new DU-COMM 'Tac' talkgroups (2614-2618) will take the place of the former areawide channels (5, 9, etc.). So far it appears that officers' transmissions on these 'Tac' talkgroups are normally encrypted while dispatcher transmissions have been unencrypted. In addition to these 'Tac' talkgroups, each PD has access to their own 'Local' talkgroup for use as an alternate or car-to-car channel.

The primary Starcom 21 Site for DuPage County units is 101. I believe you'll only hear DuPage County 26xx and 27xx talkgroups via Site 115 if a DuPage County unit affiliates with that site - this would likely not be the norm.

Bartlett and Carol Stream PD are still on UHF '1 West'. Unlike Darien PD, they have not yet moved to Starcom 21 and as such their Starcom 21 talkgroup numbers are not yet listed in the DU-COMM subcategory information you copied and pasted below.

Finally, DU-COMM UHF '2 South' was the same frequency as UHF '1 South' but in simplex (direct) mode. Patches have been used during the transition from UHF to SC21. I'd imagine that retaining the legacy naming convention for their dispatch channels has helped DU-COMM minimize confusion during this transition.
