The ContentType 9 row describes the chapters in the book. For an epubs this is the TOC. It doesn't matter if the chapters are in a single file in the epub, or separate files. It is one 9 per chapter. For other types, there is usually one 9 record.
In that case my kobo would be recognizing a whole lot of books that consist of a single chapter. More precicesly PDF Documents get registered as a single chapter while epubs would not contain a chapter at all!? I can't agree with you here davidfor. I believe that the ContentType is closely linked with the MimeType, possibly extending it's meaning beyond that of "which filetype is the document".

9 could just as well be "fixed formatted document" or something alike. But I don't think it is a chapter. Chapters get referenced by their document name, the html file in the zipped epub and the head anchor - but even those are flagged the same contenttype as the epub file itself.

I see that contenttype as well. And I can't use it As soon as something becomes a kepub.epub, my reader won't open it anymore.

When a kepub get's detected, it is CT 899; but when I force it back to 10 (which does make it a newspaper), it does not end up in the newspaper section... it remains in books. And it crashes the reader when clicked.

Turning something into a newspaper so far only works with normal epubs for me.
