Bit-perfect AAC/MP3/etc decoding?, Is it an issue?

Sorry if this is easily answered elsewhere.

My question is that in a comparison of lossy-format decoders between, let's say, iTunes and Foobar and Winamp, will the output (edit: of a single source file) vary between decoding implementations?

Or is it that once a decoder follows a specified format, all output is equal assuming there are no bugs?

…in which the author claims that differences that at most represent fluctuations in the least-significant of 24-bits are the answer to the question “Why does Apollo sound so good?”. Should we be directing traffic towards such nonsense?

Isn't he saying his error is in the 24th bit while others are 100x worse - ie. 17 bits down? Or is my math horrid?
