What?  WAV is not FLAC, and FLAC is not lossy.  I don't understand  
how you can say that a bit in the FLAC format is being used in a  
lossy version of the WAV format.  Those two formats have nothing in  
common, except that they can be converted to audio.  lossyWAV should  
be using WAV bit formats, not FLAC.
