On android "secure messengers" and reproducible builds (or lack thereof)

Hi (again)!

I looked at how several android messenger apps claiming to have
reproducible builds actually verify that they do [1].

TL;DR: It's quite possible these messengers actually have reproducible
builds, but the verification scripts they use don't actually allow us
to verify whether they do.
