I think I have answered this question a hundred times by now. The
recorded files are VBR and the Rockbox recorder doesn't (yet) generate a
VBR header (Xing or VBRI). Thus, the playback code can't see that it
is a VBR file and calculates the time based on the file size in bytes,
which will of course be wrong.
