Thanks for the feedback.
I think the procedure here is somewhat tricky and a bit confusing. 
Therefor I suggest some clarifications in the GUI and a manual example.

It is possible to Create DVD both with - and without "Use FFmpeg" checked.
On the batch render window: Enable the audiotrack,
select File format MPEG Audio: then the audio file becomes dvd.mp3

Even then changing the wrench from default Layer III to Layer II it 
keeps dvd.mp3

This is confusing because only MP2 (Audio Layer II) is supported on 

Many/most people know what "MP3 music" is,  but don't know what MPEG-1 
Audio Layer III
IMO it would be more visible and understandable if the default MPEG 
Audio file name had been
dvd.mp2 for DVD video rendering.

Another suggestion is to differ between application format like 
DVD-Video and BD-Video vs Data Disks (for MP3)
and differ between applications mandatory formats on optional formats 
that may or may not work.
