Bavarian Reichssippenamt Records #germany #records

Recently, it has been brought to my attention several times that at least some of the records which the Nazi Reichssippenamt (RSA) assembled and filmed, which were subsequently destroyed by the effects of allied bombing late in WW-II, were not the only originals. For example, here is a page of birth records for Bonfeld on Ancestry, Here is the same information from an RSA film, now in the main Baden-Württemberg archives in Stuttgart. The right-hand page follows. Clearly they were written at the same time, but are two different instances of the same records. The ones I have seen are all from Baden or Württemberg.
Does anyone know if there also are other originals of the records filmed by the RSA for Bayern (Bavaria)? I am interested in this because the RSA files for Bavaria are not currently on the internet, and even more importantly for me, one town of great interest, Binswangen in the current Landkreis Dillingen an der Donau, was incompletely filmed. I realize that Bavaria was a different country, subject to different laws from Württemberg, prior to the 19th century German unification. I am not referring to the fact that more than one copy was made from the RSA films. For example, there is a copy at the Central Archives for the History of the Jewish People in Jerusalem (CAHJP). I also realize that the originals for many places in Oberfranken (Upper Franconia) which were not filmed by the RSA are at the CAHJP.
