Exactly. Those are "filler" layers, and are generally low-grade. Reality is, you don't know what they are.
RE: loading, with the proper number of connectors, you can ensure that they will be loaded "simultaneously", but you still won't know what the wood contribution is.

When you say "taking off a few laminations" it sounds to me as if you are proposing cutting off the lower portion of the existing glulam beam, is that correct? If so, you'll want to be sure to take into account the new grade of lumber that you have at the tension face of your beam when figuring F'b.
