Hello Bernard,

You are right. These sentences don't follow the 'no would after if' rule, but 'would' is used to make the utterance sound more polite. So, actually, the degree of formality increases:

Informal: If you want ... / formal: If you'd like ...

I give more examples of these in the exclusive video lesson 'Formal Social Expression'.

Have a great day, too!
