On the Cy-Fair auction site, I saw one description of "Approx mileage reading 123,000 (MILEAGE NOT ACCURATE)...Approx Hub reading 230,000..."

Is there an actual revolution counter or mileage counter on the hubs? If so, is this SOP, or something installed by this particular school district?

Excuse my ignorance if this is common, but I've never seen this in any vehicle description before.

Yes, as auctioneer we can't guarantee Mileage. The hub miles could have been replaced by another bus which is common. They will remove them before some buses go to auction and put them other buses if needed.

Online pros have a slowing closing, you bid and it extends in 1,2,3,4,5 mins each bid to give you time to place your bid.

I would trust the hub miles more than the odometer. I know something then change them out but I see more odometer not working than changes of hub mile counter. A lot of Texas isd's use hub mile counter and as auctioneers we want to give you as much information as possible to help you make a educated decision on purchasing of an asset.
