Default Child album with different tracks

I've a question about this album which is a reprint of JBX-25016 but with a different number of tracks, the contents are identical.

Add the album as reissue and then changed the tracks?

Provided that the contents are the same, you can do this by adding the child album, then adding a tracklist to that album. This will override the tracklist from the parent album. It is useful for cases like this, where the parent album is vinyl, and they split the tracks differently on the CD.

This method doesn't work at all when albums are reissued in split discs, like the Mega Man Japanese boxset or the Bayonetta OSTs, where every CD of the physical album was sold individually via iTunes or other digital stores. The system keeps prompting you to fill details for "all discs", even if the number of discs can change from release to release.
