[sdiy] Carbon composition... vs carbon film resistors..

I am repairing a Minelab metal detector coil and came across a 511 ohm
(damping) resistor across the RX coil of a DD coil.  I measured it with my
LC102 for inductance and got 233uH.  I tried one from my parts bin and got
the same.  Is this real or a measurement artifact of the meter?  I'm going
to test a carbon comp for comparison.

Reading the following info about resistor types :

Can I conclude that 5% -> carbon film <- type resistors like these :

will show the same results as the following 5% -> carbon composition <- type

in an audio circuit ?
