I'm not sure if they're modified, but the text on his page says that they are, so they probably are. You'll have to ask him for specifics, but...
1) If they are modified, they are probably modified in a way to allow the FW to work on your rebadged OEM. I wonder if this might have anything to do with the hardware revisions of the drive.
2) Since he has it listed as being usable for the 230, you can probably use it.
3) Dave's a moderator here, and he knows what he's doing. And if the firmware on his page is modified, then he probably had a very good reason for modifying them. I'd trust his page and use what's on there instead.
Of course, the only person who could really comment on this would be Dave himself...
