...today if I buy a unit train's worth of regular 110-ton mixed-use bottom-drop hoppers for use on the US, will either load sensors or automatic brake rigging adjusters come as standard feature?

Load sensors, probably not.  (But I am not an expert here, and there are others on the forum who have experience here)

Slack adjusters have been standard issue for many decades, and I almost can't imagine a car released into interchange service that wouldn't have them.
