Procedurally, if they had source material recorded at 96kHz they had to, first, upsample it to (IIRC) 14.12MHz and then SRC it down to 44.1kHz. If the source material was recorded at 88.2kHz (or any multiple of 44.1kHz) then they could straight to 44.1kHz in 1 stage. The belief being that the less number of stages of filtering/processing that is being used on the signal, the better the results!
Has the technical process changed to be any different today?
Results 21 to 23 of 23

In the audiophile world (parallel universe...), ASRC is kin to satan. Just kin though. i.e. 88.2kHz->96kHz sample rate
If somebody sold 96/24 downloads that had ASRC previously applied to them, they'd sure hear about it, and so would just about everyone else. It's not easy to hide if you look. What someone does with their music files in the privacy of their own homes...a different matter. If ASRC helps you as a workaround, that's good too, just not preferred. [This is not the same as some other lossless data conversions the Touch/LMS can do, where data is converted 1:1 and nothing is "made up"/interpolated.]
And BTW, this would of course solve the OP's particular problem, though soulkeeper's idea is preferred, if it works.
