Does anyone know what the "丁" character at the end of tracks 2 and 3 signifies? I have no idea why they left the other tracks as " / Chiptune" but the other two have a different designation.

Also, the corresponding English tracks:

1. Shadowlord
2. Alien Manifestation
3. Bipolar Nightmare
4. Kainé

So it's interesting that the 丁 is only on the Automata tracks, but that's probably just a coincidence.

Nier Automata (the game) has many track variations that change in real time, and variations in Japanese are labelled with 丙, 乙, 甲 and 丁. In English they correspond to (IIRC) quiet, medium, dynamic and 8-bit.

You can see some tracks with those labels in the OST and Hacking Tracks album, so the :丁 is part of the track name.

丙/乙/甲/丁 here seem to go for an order meaning, that being 3rd/2nd/1st/4th.

Ah, so these would qualify as 8-bit? Certainly makes sense. Thanks!
