Interesting. But first of all, I believe your command line is wrong.
"-ar" uses ffmpeg's native resampler, I believe. Using the filter, you
need to pass the rate to the filter itself:

ffmpeg -i In16k.wav -af aresample=resampler=soxr:sample_rate=8000 Out8k.wav

You could also just use any other resampler, e.g. by omitting "-af
aresample=resampler=soxr" fully.

I don't have soxr support, so I can't reproduce your issue. It should
be deterministic. Perhaps some metadata thing.

Can you try whether the command line option "-bitexact" changes
