Yes indeed, this seems to be a way to size them up alright. I have ten 3rd year Persian Star growing from cloves, will be interesting to compare the size of them.
Some of the 'rounds' looked almost clove shaped or angular when I pulled them, but after cleanup they are looking more rounded, and clearly have no divisions - except for one which, you're right, looks like it has tried to or made a division on one side.

Strangely the mini-bulbs with scapes had a very thin skin that just rubbed right off. It looks like the divisions are below the surface, maybe the top layer will dry and become a skin as well. Only the one with no scape, that seems divided, still has a skin, like the rounds.
