Would it be correct to state that 16-bit FFV1 RGB will always be
gbr16, even if the source is rgb48? My understanding is that the data
is the same, but one is packed, the other is planar?

That is good to know. I wasn't sure as to what was actually happening.
It seems that I can reconstruct the original files in a lossless
manner after FFV1 transcoding so I am very happy with that.
