AV1: MOD2 or MOD8 - which is better?

I'd like to convert some DCP 2K trailers; as they are 2048x858 and 1998x1080, hence MOD2, I'd like to know if, padding video with black borders until I obtain MOD8 (2048x864 and 2000x1080), AV1 will encode better or if it's the same.

AFAIR there were problems with MOD2 AVC and HEVC encoding with some hardware players; it's still the case with AV1?

Mod compatibility issues are almost entirely due to decoder/video rendering problems, not encoding problems. In general, I'm 100% confident in Mod8, and secure with Mod4 as long as I can test across older players. The good news about using AV1 is that there isn't old AV1 hardware, so in theory everything should work, and any issues could be addressed with a firmware fix.

My fault... I wrote encoding when I meant decoding...

I try to use MOD8 at least - and MOD16 whenever possible.

Back to DCP resolution: I'm aware that 1998x1080 is perfectly 1.85:1, but isn't it "better" (easier? faster? better quality?), for resizers, to have for example 2000x1080 that, when multiplied x0.96 is 1920x1036.8 instead of 1998x1080 that should use x0.96096096... to get 1920x1037.8378368... ?
