    iTunes now has to verify the restore through apple before it will let you restore for the 3GS
    This is the reason you need the iBEC & iBSS files.

    Trying to decide when to Jailbreak, and have a question about this. So, if I Jailbreak my 3GS, and then decide I want to restore to factory Apple 3.0 firmware, or let's say 3.0.01, 3.1 (if they are releases), I have to have the iBEC and iBSS files? I'm confused.

    No. You only need those files to perform future jailbreaks not on 3.0 I believe
