> One question I have is, can/does SOABI flag removal affect any third party package/extension builds in any way, particularly affecting the names of files they produce?

Yep, the default file names of C extension modules differ on most/all? Unix-y platforms (certainly vanilla Linux and macOS) because the SOABI is included in the file name.
