However, Martin Lofton's categorisation of some rebuilds as 'AAR design' made me think that some earlier 'extended height' category rebuilds maybe differed from AAR dimensions.

Which would be correct. The early Youngstown Steel Door Co. pre-fab car sides offered no increase in height, the sheathing pattern differed from the AAR design, and were intended to use the existing roof components. The last iteration of the design essentially supplied an AAR standard body modified to adapt it to a narrower underframe.
