    ...beginning above...

    Judging by the fact that ONE single file is uploaded but the viewer gets SIX or more (144p, 240p, 360p etc), each with different audio quality, I would suggest that there IS conversion happening (and subsequently, dithering applied) for all files below the "max quality" of 1080p or 4K or whatever. So, if a video software applies dithering and THEN YT applies another one, I would imagine that un-dithered file is needed at the beginning...
