In the years since Sims2 started several items were "upgraded" by EA/Maxis - bookcases and fridges are the main things - to have extra functionality, but some great CC items were never updated and so do not have these extra gameplay options. It's a shame and it bugs many players.
You can actually do this yourself fairly easily with bookcases.
1) Open up SIMPE
2) Open your custom object that you want to upgrade.

3) Go to the Object data tab
4) Click on the raw data tab
5) Set the view to decimal
6) Scroll down until you see "Interaction Table Id"
7) Change the 1 to a 3.
8) Commit and save.

Yup, I found that out round about the corner piece on the dahlen
* leefish sighs. Do you have any idea how many bookcases I have made the LONG way?

I do not know - I have never tried. I suspect it is indeed possible - you just need to know what number to change it to.
You could have a look inside a custom fridge that does have the options, see what the number is in the Interaction Table and then open another cc fridge where the options are not present. If those two numbers are different then try it.
Custom fridges that do NOT automatically adjust to present EPs/SPs, have been setup in the wrong manner, and will not be easy to update, although I've had some experience with it.
There is even a resource file attached and it seems to make it shockingly simple. With thanks to Lord Darcy.
