When it was a full court press to get multiple sets of parts to plants all over the world on a tight deadline for a big international release, there often would be some of each. All-analogue, analogue through ddl, or 1610/1630 through ddl. No telling what plants got what. At the time, nobody cared.

And the artists who got released internationally in huge quantities with massive promotion and a single worldwide release date were -- stands to reason -- the biggest ones.
