I guess one potential benefit in using bomber aircraft to launch our ballistic missiles is preventing unintentionally triggering mutually assured destruction. Even with our no first use policy, America undoubtedly does not trust it fully. Launching dozens of ballistic missiles against naval vessels from land could be understood as too reckless by China, where launching them from bomber aircraft would cause less panic for the opponent in question and thus would not lead to a nuclear response immediately.
There is also the possibility that launching from an H-6N that is closer to the US fleet will shorten the kill chain.

If only the KD-63s were replaced by stealth missiles... I doubt that in today's day and age these slow and big P15-derived missiles are still of any use
