I can see how the first example, about the grades, would be relevant. What if the second example happened at a university-sponsored event? Would that still be relevant if one was no longer a student there at the time?

Anything that happens after someone graduates is not encompassed by the question (unless of course they fall into the general crime question).
Like question 1 from Chicago:
"In connection with your enrollment at any college, university, or other institution of higher education..."
or question 1 from UVA:
"Have you ever been subject to verbal or written discipline (informal or formal, and of any type, such as but not limited to warning, reprimand, suspension, and/or dismissal) for scholastic or other reasons in any of the colleges, universities, graduate or professional schools you have attended, or by any employer?"
They only apply to school's you've attended, but that doesn't necessarily mean that they only apply to incidents that occurred while
you were attending. If, for instance, you got censured by a school for lying about your grades from there (I have no idea if this actually happens) after you graduated, then that would still be "in connection with your enrollment," and it would still be "verbal or written discipline...for scholastic...reasons in [a] college...you have attended".
If you got cited by university police for being drunk on campus after you graduated, though, I don't think it would fall under these questions.
Without more specifics it's impossible to answer non-hypothetically.
I would think probably not, but again, without more specifics, it's impossible to say for sure.
Was the event connected to the fact that you used to be a student there (i.e. was it something specifically for graduates?)
In general, you're best off either (a) disclosing, or (b) contacting the admissions office and asking if you need to disclose. If the incident is major enough that you think it might actually impact your admissions chances, and it's at all debatable whether you should have disclosed on the app or not, then it will
come out during your bar application, and it will
be an issue that you didn't disclose.
