While this is entirely possible (the "adjustment") I really don't think it's happening a lot, at least I haven't seen any indication of such methods in any critical articles about the state of film preservation and similar texts.

1.33:1 has been referred to as Academy Ratio for a long, long time.  Most of the time they don't even bother to note that it was originally 1.37:1 anymore.  In any case, why would they even mention such a slight change (.04) when prepping the old movies for TV or DVD?  Only the purists will notice such a difference and realize what is going on.

I was always under the impressions that the early Chaplin films from the 20's was filmed in 1:25.1 hence creating a window box effect.,, Couldn't find anything on it though but did find this fascinating essay on the history of aspect ratio for you  buffs who like to bookmark these type of pages..
