[time-nuts] Totally unrelated, but..

I did check the circuit through the whole range that it should operate in, based on component data sheets. No issues.
I also carefully varied the voltage right around where the regulator output is, to see if there was some very narrow band of sensitivity.

Could the low noise parts actually be counterfeit, relabeled as such?

Is the circuit the regulator feeds sensitive to a narrow band of voltage that the "good regulator" is outside of?

Try replacing the regulator with a battery supply and resistor divider to attain the working voltage. Move the voltage around. A good potentiometer and stiff filter capacitors are recommended so as not to introduce "pot noise".

Is something corrupting your test procedure?  I had a circuit that misbehaved due to floating logic pins reacting to static electricity on the work bench. Another time a diode was photosensitive.
