An R 4.5 app can be read with newer clients without any issues(*) Layout regions were only an issue if put into a design accessed by an older client.

If I didn't understand the question, please clarify.

It's also pretty easy to test out.

(*) There may be code issues; R4.5 didn't have things like the 'split' function in LS and may apps included a custom function to do string splitting; this can be problematic if run on a newer client. If you have may old apps, I'd recommend buying TeamStudio's Migration Filters; they're perfect for finding code issues across versions. I don't work for TS but do use and love their products and support.

My original description was a little murky
I realize from your reply that I was a little misleading. This DB was created in the late 90s, though there's hardly a field or a line of code that I haven't touched in some manner over the years. Some odd behaviors in OSX and Linux clients seems to be primarily in text fields in layout regions. I don't know whether there could be something underlying in the 'oldness' of the DB itself (it has been updated to ODS 51 BTW) that could explain it. I have hundreds of Windows users and they don't experience the sort of weirdness the non-Windows users do.
