A question about offsets

A lot of music I obtain (legally) which has been ripped by EAC (Exact Audio Copy) reports “Fill up missing offset samples with silence : Yes” in the EAC text log.

My question is: is filling up the missing offset samples with silence what more common, not secure ripping programs such as Musicmatch, Windows Media Player & ITunes do automatically?

No, as they don’t use offset correction…

What do they do then, instead?

As they don’t read offset corrected, then there will be no missing offset samples…
