I don't doubt, that Roland did handle it that way. My thought is more: 
was it really necessary? These are quasi linear VCAs. Different 
characteristics would have a lower impact than in an exponentiator. I 
don't doubt that there would exist a difference, but I doubt one would 
hear(!) the difference, if matched pairs with different HFEs would be used.
