Well, unless the inherent noise in the track is high enough to act as its own dither. It would be impossible to see in a final spectrum as the final down sample will dominate.
Like this Dvorak ("192/24")remastered from original Studer A80 Master Tape?

In reality it seems to be different, as we know that some kind of noise modulation (not totally indepent from the signal content) occurs.

Yes, that reality is the problem for me.
