In lessons, when the chord is not written, how do you know the voicing?

In Jovino’s 5-Minute Masterclasses some of the chords are written as Db maj9, Ab13(sus4), Amaj9, E13(sus4), C9(sus4) instead of scored out.

Is there a standard way to voice these when they’re not actually scored on the stave?

I know you can look at his hands and do it that way, but it’s a bit tedious as it’s hard to stop the video in he right spot to actually see it.

Also, when playing an A9(sus4) and your left hand is playing a base A, would it usually be voiced with the 4th in the 2nd octave with the right hand?
