(This does not address your question about extending to Linux, but...)

Could you describe this phenomenon and interaction pattern with
Android developers in more detail? I would particularly interested in
what incentives, thought patterns or obstacles you believe you are
encountering here.

I ask because a big part of the purpose of "Reproducible Builds"
existing as a community/project is education, ie. to reach out to other
communities so we can work together towards common goals.
Understanding what other communities' incentives are is therefore
highly instructive in working out how we can collaborate, and I don't
believe I have a firm grasp on the Android perspective.

Best wishes,
