Superlatives: "Most" or "The Most"

Good morning. Reading some articles on the internet I found these sentences, should not superlatives always been preceeded by “THE”?

1.- Departments pick someone they think they will be “MOST” comfortable with.

2.- Sometimes the final selection of one of these “most qualified” candidates is based on which research specialty seems “MOST” promising, fits best with existing strengths of a department, or takes the department’s…

3.- We will hire whoever/whomever is “MOST” qualified.
We will hire him. He is “MOST” qualified.

Thanks once again for all of your kindness. God Bless you.

Most in your examples modifies the adjectives (most comfortable;most qualified;most promising). You don’t need “the” in these cases.
