When to incorporate 2x, 2.5x, 3x preflop raises early in a tournament

 When to incorporate 2x, 2.5x, 3x preflop raises early in a tournament
I know that in later stages, a min raise to 2.25x is usually standard preflop. Early in tournaments, I wonder what determines villains different open sizes (with the exception of the donk who opens 4.5x, 5x kind of stuff pf), or even later in a tourney and why some people do 2.5x, 2.25, 3x and so on. Ive read that stack sizes can determine the amount as well but I dont grasp the concept fully and I was wondering if anyone had any input on this. Thanks!!
