Japanese tends to separate the type of compound verbs into how they behave physically. E.g. 持ってくる is more like 2 separate action, Pick it up and bring it. However 吸い取る is more like a single action. E.g. Another one 溶け込む as a single action would never be read as 溶かして込む。 Many of these just need to be memorized.
