Bog waders and agony beetles are used as bioweapons.
Cistern fiends are used to purify (and collect!) water.
Pulp bee for honey and pulp.

I seem to remember one or two other beasts that if trained from young could be used as trackers…

Boneclaw
Tagster
Zhackal

Purple Caterpillar to discipline slaves

Dhaggoran for hunting?

Aurumvorax were in the Monstrous Manual. What do you mean they weren’t in the 2e books? Pretty sure they went further back than that too. Yep, 1e Fiend Folio.

They may have been listed in a few D&D products but they weren’t referenced in any 2nd ed Dark Sun book products as a creature found on Athas. However, they were presented as creatures on Athas in 2 of the 3 computer games.
