C Major Embellishments

Let's check out a cool embellishment for our open C chord. Lift off our middle finger, so the D string rings open. Now just like you saw it with the other chords, you can add your pinky in the 3rd fret of the D string.

Im a bit confused on these chords. I see on the notation section these are saying Cadd9 and Cadd11. Would these not be Csus2 and Csus4 chords? I checked the chord chart on Guitartricks and I do not see a Cadd11 chord listed. In the past two lessons the chords were Dsus2 and Dsus4 and Asus2 and Asus4. Just checking to see if these are supposed to also be sus2 and sus4. Thanks for the help!
