I know these days CBC in Canada has custom made half hour episodes with proper opening and closing sequences and no beginning-of-part stings so perhaps all exports now receive these, or relevant clean scenes and credits to edit in.
It's the same on Hulu in the US (which has the previous 12 months worth of episodes) available.
That's likely always been the case. If anyone remembers the disruption caused to Corrie after the Derek Bird incident in Cumbria where episodes got delayed, we had opening titles and end credits on a couple of episodes that wouldn't have had them if they'd been shown where they were meant to.
Again though, the episodes on the Network DVDs keep them as originally broadcast, with generic credits and "continues in half an hour" captions.
Reminds me a few years ago on the Virgin Media catchup service, one episode went out with the "clean" textless versions of the titles, credits, break captions and opening scene after the end of the episode for a few hours, before they took it off.
