There is documentation on this somewhere.
Even when running with MPI and/or OpenMP simulations should be reproducible when ran on an identical run setup. The only things that usually matter, and which -reprod should turn off, are dynamic load balancing and FFTW kernel choice by timing.
You can mail me your tpr and I can have a look.
