What is the point of bots in battery and research mode where there are just two live players per team?
They don't protect and deliver batteries, they don't capture research points (except when they pass by one - randomly) and they tend to stick close to live player and in a way reveal players location to other team.

In matches with more live players (3+) they are ok if needed but in a match 5 vs 5 where there are just 2 live players per team it is bad.

Bots cap points in research just fine - and not by accident.
They are programmed to do so as part of their wanderings but you are correct, they will not head straight for a research point like a real player might however it is what it is.
VG collect and analyse the bot data to improve their behaviour and what we have now is a significant improvement over what we had before.
In other modes they simply assist you to complete your objectives by clearing opposition players.
Figure out how to use them to your advantage.

I'm sure you understand that the alternative in circumstances where there are only two players on each team is that you don't get a match or you wait for 10-30 minutes like in the old days.

Do bots listen to in game commands like need help, cover me, attack?
If not, could they?

Bots don't respond to commands, and I don't think they will in the future.

I understand.
But I think that there shouldn't be research or battery match if there is not at least 3 live players on each side.
