The problem might be that it is a WAV file that cannot contain metadata for Atmos or Auro3D.
I thought the same thing. I don't understand how a .wav file could contain the metadata needed to flag Auro3d playback when sent to the AVR. But I presumed since IAA was selling it that way it works somehow.

It’s just like DTS. You can put encoded DTS into a wav (and FLAC file).

Atmos, Auro is delivered in a pcm/wav format. The metadata is used by the decoder to mix objects to speakers based on your speaker layout during the decode.
