The simple summary we are coming to so far.

I have been using MediaInfo on a random selection of these files. And the sample I dipped into all seem to be LAME3.98r (and one 3.99r) encoded and certainly not all VBR. Just a random selection of different options.

Example non-VBR is Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong - Tenderly.mp3

Have only quickly looked at half a dozen in Media Info as I still don't have that beer open...
