BUG: Converting audio files to 24 kbps or less only converts to 32 kbps

SAB 9.2.4 (Windows)
The resulting audio files converted to MP3, 24kbps, 1 channel in SAB are 32kbps, not 24kbps.
I tried 16kbps with the same result of 32kbps. Changing to 2 channels does not help.

The source file is 320kbps.
I am converting from the Book Collection - Audio Files tab.

convert-audio.bat file:

@echo off
for /F “tokens=1-4 delims=:.,” %%a in ("%STARTTIME%") do (
set /A “start=(((%%a*60)+1%%b %% 100)*60+1%%c %% 100)*100+1%%d %% 100”

@echo *** Convert Audio Files ***

echo Time Elapsed: %DURATION%
