For example in Windows, “the 4 bytes following the first 440 bytes contain the Windows Unique Disk Signature” -> https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/254657/mbr-size-is-440-bytes-or-512-bytes#254662

None, is correct. ... it is composed of 3 parts: the boot code (446 bytes long), the partition table (64 bytes long) and the boot code signature (2 bytes long) -> https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/252509/using-dd-in-order-to-save-and-restore-a-boot-sector
