First, I don't think the original filesystem type is at play. I

I'm compelled by the evidence to agree with you on this point.

See the test I just posted - from the cd:

├── [-rw-r--r-- cer2 users 0] pePE
├── [-rw-r--r-- cer users 0] pepe
├── [-rw-r--r-- cer users 0] pepe.
├── [-rw------- cer users 0] pepe2

They are "rw", and different users. And I used root to mount the CD.

This makes perfect sense because that's how the files were written
during your test, where you specified 'backup' mode to preserve those
attributes. I believe the 'norm' (not backup mode) causes files to be
properly marked as read-only on read-only media.
