I thought it's quite clear why this works in VICE: the track is ordinary DOS format, written across both tracks 35 and 36. VICE automatically aligns tracks to sector 0 (if they are regular DOS) and so the protection sees what it wants when it bumps heads between tracks.

If this was the EA protection or Rapidlok, the track 36 data would not be valid DOS sectors (just plain GCR) and the value would not be correct in a D64 image.
