EAC + LAME: unwanted tags

Hello,

I'm using EAC v1.5 to rip my CDs to FLAC + MP3.

Everything is fine, except that LAME encoder adds those unneeded tags:



Here are my encoder options:
Quote
"-V0 --add-id3v2 --pad-id3v2 --ta \"%artist%\" --tt \"%title%\" --tg \"%genre%\" --tl \"%albumtitle%\" --ty \"%year%\" --tn \"%tracknr%/%numtracks%\" %source%"

LAME 3.100 x64, MD5: 2AC60218D0B6A3D8B4248E688A552BEB

Not a big issue, but I'd like to understand why those tags are added.

Thanks in advance.

The above is from a file created using lame.exe via cmd.exe (command prompt).
The tags go away using the -id3v1-only option (all ID3v2 options removed).

Thanks for the analysis, korth.
Indeed, LameDropXPd adds the same tags. Fields are a bit short with ID3v1, so I'll remove TSSE and TLEN tags with Kid3, not a big deal ;)
