Text files for 1.21z show the large throwing axes (2x3 inventory squares) with up to 4 sockets (norm), 5 sockets (exceptional) and 5 sockets (Elite). When adding sockets to these items on the servers (tested with Duff's, Zerolag HU-1, and HU-2), they cap at 3 sockets. I've seen these axes with 4 sockets in the Aftermath mod (pretty sure that's based on D2 v1.10), so I don't think there's a hard-coded limitation.

It would be nice if these axes had more sockets so that more runewords could be used in them. Is there any reason they are capped at 3 sockets?

the problem is in ItemTypes.txt.
row 44 (Throwing Axe) has max sockets set to 3, 3 and 3

easy fix though

Indeed, an easy fix. I understand that the three numbers refer to the item level of any type of throwing axe, so max 3 sockets for axe-level 1, 25 and 40. Long ago Mancer mentioned that he wanted items to have their max sockets regardless of level, which is why those three numbers match for all socketable items.

Perhaps those running servers can quickly edit their own files such that the numbers are 5, 5 and 5. Or perhaps 6, 6, and 6, since the max-sockets field of each axe type will limit it appropriately (Similar to how Javelins have max 6 sockets in ItemType.txt, but fewer in Weapons.txt), this allows future patches to consider 6 sockets for the 2x3 size throwing axes.

It would at least be nice to see this change implemented in any patch produced in the future.

I've adjusted them and added them to the proposal
