COMMENTS
Start with a complete bipartite graph K(3,n) with vertex sets A and B where |A| = 3 and |B| is at least 4. We can arrange the points in sets A and B such that h(A,B) = d(a,b) for all a in A and b in B, where h is the Hausdorff metric. The pair [A,B] is a configuration. Then a set C is between A and B at location s if h(A,C) = h(C,B) = h(A,B) and h(A,C) = s. Call a pair ab, where a is in A and b is in B an edge. This sequence provides the number of sets between sets A' and B' at location s in a new configuration [A',B'] obtained from [A,B] by removing three edges, where all three removed edges are incident to the same point in A. So this sequence gives the number of sets at each location on the line segment between A' and B'.
Number of {0,1} 3 X n matrices (with n at least 4) with three fixed zero entries all in the same row and no zero rows or columns.
Take a complete bipartite graph K(3,n) (with n at least 4) having parts A and B where |A| = 3. This sequence gives the number of edge covers of the graph obtained from this K(3,n) graph after removing three edges, where all three removed edges are incident same vertex in A.

FORMULA
a(n) = 27*7^(n-3) - 29*3^(n-3) + 2.
From Stefano Spezia, Jan 26 2021: (Start)
G.f.: 8*x^4*(13 - 10*x)/(1 - 11*x + 31*x^2 - 21*x^3).
a(n) = 11*a(n-1) - 31*a(n-2) + 21*a(n-3) for n > 6. (End)
