the header is not changed by altering the extension. just the extension. in your experiment above you gave the wav an incorrect extension then switched it back to what it should be. windows even warns you that it is not a good idea.

an aif file with the extension altered to wav is still an aif file except with the incorrect extension. so GRC needs to do a proper conversion aif>wav.
