The way you have described your step fathers POA's would make your younger step-brother and then older step-brother the sucessors to your mom should she be incapacitated, or choose to step down for any reason.

Without seeing the document, I am only going on what you have written, but as such you are not named, therefore you would not assume your mother's position by default.
