Default similar exponents - different backup file sizes


just started to PRP test 4 similar exponents: 1xxxxx327, 1xxxxx329 and 1xxxxx681, 1xxxxx683 ... two pairs of twin primes.

Looking at the file sizes of .bu, .bu2 etc. I found for first exponent 43MB, for second: 50, third: 55 and fourth: 52, residues files are all of same size, 5.1 GB.

Shouldn't the save files of similar exponents be of comparable sizes?
Restarted completely from the beginning, same observation. Is something going wrong here?

PC is using a 4-core cpu, ht not used in calculations (4 workers, each with 1 thread).
