They are really in the eye of the beholder.
The first video is generally considered a class I run since it has small waves with few obstructions.
The class II section of the second video has slightly larger waves, and adds obstructions like rocks to maneuver around.
The class III section (Zoar Gap) has bigger waves and obstructions and requires more precise maneuvering.
