You however are correct, the internal names of those modules are all $57
$B7= "W7" once you strip the high bit from the last character of the name.
It is the byte value at $0034 that is changing the module crc, and that is
seemingly not related to the name.
Looking at the .asm src, the name is incremented correctly. Something has
gone a bit aglay someplace. I don't think I would try to use them just yet.
