@StephenTouset you have asked an excellent question. I think it'll be better to post it as a question so people can find it. (you are welcome to comment with a link)

Knowing if it's consistent across multiple tries is half the question, I did not know if there's some command line option to set the random component to a fixed preset one. Running the same command twice will tel me how it is in my version, I didn't know in advance if there are different behaviours for different versions.

I didn't mention it before, but I guessed it would have a random component, now I need to save the md5sum of the encrypted version.
