Times change. I have created a tutorial in which I show how it is possible for everyone to publish high-quality sound (opus @ 160kbps) on YouTube. See here: '2019 How to Upload Best Audio Quality to YouTube. Opus for All. ' → https://youtu.be/yjBIzNId5Yk

160kbps Opus may be perfectly adequate but it's not "high resolution".   

And, are you sure YouTube won't transcode it?    They may be transcoding everything, even if it doesn't need it... I don't know...

If you want the best audio on youtube, just export with a lossless audio codec (FLAC and WAV will work) to avoid transcoding, or the highest quality AAC available (surprisingly, AAC handles transcoding very well). Better safe than sound, I wouldn't trust youtube to not transcode audio, and I also believe that id 251 is always targeting 128kb/s and the OPUS VBR is raising it up depending on the content. You can see this behavior when encoding OPUS files in VBR manually, depending on the content the average bitrate can go up to double the target value.
