to my understanding, writing with dd on a mounted device leads to
unpredictable results, and never guarantees to work.

and i think your problem was not caused by differences in dd builds,
it was different behaviours of the systems on a modified mounted root

It would seem we're finally getting somewhere. This should be fairly easy to test, namely: performing dd on an *unmounted* (not live) system and seeing if it finally works.
