What they do does not make any difference to us, what is important how  
often we have to change the tuning word to meet our requirements, and if we  
dither it will be an addition or subtraction from the center value. With out  
dither it would be 4 times a month on my unit. That will allow a very large  
filter TC.

My guess about why you don't  see aging or so little of it is that
maybe some engineer at FEI already did  the test and added firmware in
the FE5680 to correct the output for  estimated aging.  So what you are
measuring is the difference between  true aging and the unit's internal
aging model.

Trimble does  something like this in holdover mode, the controller
compensates for the  OCXO's estimated aging
