Are all 32 pre-gap frames equal?, Doing experiments to verify old rips...

In the past I have ripped some old CDs which have a pre-gap of 32 frames before the first track. Ripped as tracks, and the pre-gap was left out (And can't verify the rip anymore against AR).

I found out that making a sum of this gap, extracted from any CD that has this gap, plus the "rest" of the rip in the form of image, will give me the exact full image ripped, that had those samples discarded from the initial rip.

But I also found that this can work with any other CD that has the same 32 frames pre-gap, using the same gap file. And the same goes for other gaps such as 33 frames. To the point that I can recreate old rips in its "full entirety" to be checked against AccurateRip without having to rerip all over again.

The question is rather subjective, but are these pre-gaps all binary identical by convention or will they differ as in data sound depending on the "rare" CD with that....?

I would like to say that the process of checking with AR which I am using is only through foobar2000. It's just a trick to reconstruct a multi-track rip off foobar2000 if you don't feel like re-ripping or no longer have a DVD-RW drive. I haven't used cuetools in a long time and last time I checked it was version 2.x which was pretty unusable to me. It's true that you can miss HTOA, but it's not the case with most pressings. The AccurateRip is only a plus. You can check your own previous rip integrity by just checking the CRC32 image.
