I am about to attach a few new circuits to my panel. All of my existing circuits exit from the top of my panel and are secured 12 inches from leaving it. None of them are in conduit.

If my new circuits exit from the bottom of the panel, down the wall before entering studs on either side do they need to be in conduit?

No, nope, not required.

All wiring that leaves the bottom of panels must be protected by 3" RMC. See NEC

Now you're just teasing me.
