The generator that I have (v3) does not show this strange behavior (using ent function from ubuntu 18.04) – typical result looks like

Entropy = 8.000000 bits per byte.Optimum compression would reduce the size
of this 4437100000 byte file by 0 percent.Chi square distribution for 4437100000 samples is 265.26, and randomly
would exceed this value 31.64 percent of the times.Arithmetic mean value of data bytes is 127.5004 (127.5 = random).

But still the question: is there any more detailed information about whitening algorithms, except from the documentation quotes: “entropy mixing algorithm takes in $20$ bits of entropy and outputs $8$ bit to ensure that maximum entropy is maintained. The algorithm uses multiplication in a Galois field similar to a cyclic redundancy check to mix the ADC inputs thoroughly while spreading the entropy evenly across all bits” and “We split the data into multiple streams and use the XOR method to reduce bias (whiten) the output data… A significant amount of time was spent getting the whitening correct without reducing the throughput too much. Currently, the random data is XORed/downselected at about a 20:1 rate to whiten while keeping maximum entropy”
