The solution is to go to conversion - EPUB Output and check the No SVG cover option. This will ensure SVG covers will not be generated and JPG files will be used instead.

I guess I can't completely discount that theory, but I converted 3 books in the same session. Two of them I then edited with Sigil for chapters. The third I left as is. Then I transferred them all to my phone.

The one I didn't edit in Sigil has its cover, no problem, but the other two don't.
That's what led me to think it was a Sigil thing, rather than a calibre thing.

Sigil was the only variable in the process for the three books.
